When was this introduced?

3b5cf20cf439 "sunrpc: Use skcipher and ahash/shash"
- probably not, assuming the above was still just as wrong with
crypto_hash_{init,setkey,digest} as it is with
crypto_ahash_{init,setkey,digest}

So I'm guessing it was wrong from the start when it was added by
fffdaef2eb4a "gss_krb5: Add support for rc4-hmac encryption" 8 years
ago. Wonder why it took this long to notice? Did something else
change?
