Crypto maintainers, would it be still possible to squeeze this patch to
4.16? It's quite trivial, but as it is not in a code I maintain I'm not
comfortable to add it to my tree (unless I get an ACK).

The linked patch depends on that change and would let us get rid of some
custom crypto wrappers around crc32c.
