Subject[BACKPORT 4.14.y 7/8] ppp: mppe: Revert "ppp: mppe: Add softdep to arc4"
From: Eric Biggers <>

Commit 0e5a610b5ca5 ("ppp: mppe: switch to RC4 library interface"),
which was merged through the crypto tree for v5.3, changed ppp_mppe.c to
use the new arc4_crypt() library function rather than access RC4 through
the dynamic crypto_skcipher API.

Meanwhile commit aad1dcc4f011 ("ppp: mppe: Add softdep to arc4") was
merged through the net tree and added a module soft-dependency on "arc4".

The latter commit no longer makes sense because the code now uses the
"libarc4" module rather than "arc4", and also due to the direct use of
arc4_crypt(), no module soft-dependency is required.

So revert the latter commit.
