SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] Bluetooth: Remove VLA usage in aes_cmac

Hi Marcel,

Once that has concluded we can revisit if this patch is still needed or if another solution has been found. Same as with WiFi, these are not just one-shot calls where a memory allocation doesn’t matter. We need this for random address resolution and thus there can be many of the aes_cmac calls when seeing neighboring devices.

Yeah. I agree.

Based on Herbert's response to the discussion about SHASH_DESC_ON_STACK
https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/3/27/300

it seems it is feasible to fix that macro very easily. I will follow up
on this.

By the way, what is you opinion on replacing crypto_shash_descsize(ctx)
with PAGE_SIZE / 8 in SHASH_DESC_ON_STACK?

Does it work for you?

Thanks
