Sure, I'm just not sure whether __aligned() with such a large alignment is
guaranteed to work on stack variables on all architectures. See e.g.
https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/9507697/.

shash_update_unaligned() is only called when 'data & alignmask'.
Similarly with shash_final_unaligned().

Though, calculating 'unaligned_len' could be simplified to

unsigned int unaligned_len = -(unsigned long)data & alignmask;

which works either way.
