I agree we should not have failed requests, _with_ MAY_BACKLOG, that
pass through crypto-engine. All these requests must me executed. For
this case I have a solution and I'll work on it.

This cannot happen right now.
For non-crypto API requests (like split key or rng) I cannot pass them
through crypto-engine which only supports aead, skcipher, hash and
akcipher requests.

So, I believe that if the first problem is solved (to have all crypto
API requests, that have backlog flag executed - retry mechanism instead
of reporting failure) the non-crypto API request doesn't have to be pass
through crypto-engine - these can be handled by driver.
