Subject[PATCH v2] crypto: ctr - avoid VLA use
Date
All ciphers implemented in Linux have a block size less than or
equal to 16 bytes and the most demanding hw require 16 bytes
alignment for the block buffer.
We avoid 2 VLAs[1] by always allocating 16 bytes with 16 bytes
alignment, unless the architecture supports efficient unaligned
accesses.
We also check the selected cipher at instance creation time, if
it doesn't comply with these limits, we fail the creation.
