Subject[PATCH v2] crypto: AF_ALG - limit mask and type
Date
The user space interface allows specifying the type and the mask field
used to allocate the cipher. As user space can precisely select the
desired cipher by using either the name or the driver name, additional
selection options for cipher are not considered necessary and relevant
for user space.

This fixes a bug where user space is able to cause one cipher to be
registered multiple times potentially exhausting kernel memory.
