I wasn’t aware of those, and indeed it doesn’t pass them yet:
[ 0.680164] alg: skcipher: cbc-aes-nintendo encryption overran dst buffer on test vector 0, cfg="out-of-place"
[ 0.680201] fbcon: Taking over console
[ 0.680219] ------------[ cut here ]------------
[ 0.680222] alg: self-tests for cbc-aes-nintendo (cbc(aes)) failed (rc=-75)

I’ll try to figure out how to debug this and I’ll send a v2, thanks for
the hint!
