Ok, I did not realise that, so thanks for pointing that out to me.

Hmmm... I wouldn't exactly consider it to be not performance critical - it
can be under certain circumstanced, but I guess it's already wasting lots
of cycles on allocations and key precomputes in safexcel_hmac_setkey, so
for now dynamically allocating the state is fine.

Actually, for HMAC-SHA512 you DO need all that buffer space.
You could shrink it to 2 * ctx->state_sz but then your simple indexing
is no longer going to fly. Not sure if that would be worth the effort.

I don't like the part where you dynamically allocate the cryto_aes_ctx
though, I think that was not necessary considering its a lot smaller.
And it conflicts with another change I have waiting that gets rid of
aes_expandkey and that struct alltogether (since it was really just
abused to do a key size check, which was very wasteful since the
function actually generates all roundkeys we don't need at all ...)

So I'll get rid of that struct anyway and doing it in this patch just
complicates applying your patch to my code or rebasing my stuff later.
