crypto is not a subsystem to ever try to emulate :)

You are creating a structure with a lifetime that you control, don't
have someone else create your memory, that's almost never what you want
to do. Most all driver subsystems create their own memory chunks for
what they need to do, it's a much better pattern.

Especially when you get into pointer lifetime issues...

It is in linux-next, look there...
