SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/4] mdev: Introduce sha1 based mdev alias

Maybe add some motivation here as well?

"Some vendor drivers want an identifier for an mdev device that is
shorter than the uuid, due to length restrictions in the consumers of
that identifier.

Add a callback that allows a vendor driver to request an alias of a
specified length to be generated (via sha1) for an mdev device. If
generated, that alias is checked for collisions."

Don't you need to call crypto_free_shash() if mdev_bus_register() fails?

What about:

* @get_alias_length: optional callback to specify length of the alias to create
* Returns unsigned integer: length of the alias to be created,
* 0 to not create an alias

I also think it might be beneficial to add a device parameter here now
(rather than later); that seems to be something that makes sense.
