Thanks for doing this! It annoyed me too that there wasn't a helper function
for this. Just a few comments below:

I think it would be cleaner to switch af_alg and algif_* over to the new
interface in its own patch, rather than in the same patch that introduces the
new interface.

In general can you try to keep the argument lists indented sanely? (This
applies throughout the patch series.) e.g. here I'd have expected:

err = crypto_wait_req(crypto_ahash_init(&ctx->req),
&ctx->wait);

crypto_wait_req() maybe should be inlined, since it doesn't do much (note that
reinit_completion is actually just a variable assignment), and the common case
is that 'err' will be 0, so there will be nothing to wait for.

Also drop the unnecessary semicolon at the end of the switch block.

With regards to the wait being uninterruptible, I agree that this should be the
default behavior, because I think users waiting for specific crypto requests are
generally not prepared to handle the wait actually being interrupted. After
interruption the crypto operation will still proceed in the background, and it
will use buffers which the caller has in many cases already freed. However, I'd
suggest taking a close look at anything that was actually doing an interruptible
wait before, to see whether it was a bug or intentional (or "doesn't matter").

And yes there could always be a crypto_wait_req_interruptible() introduced if
some users need it.

Move this definition down below, so it's next to crypto_wait?

Don't add unrelated blank lines.
