crypto: api - Rebirth of crypto_alloc_tfm
This patch reintroduces a completely revamped crypto_alloc_tfm. The biggest change is that we now take two crypto_type objects when allocating a tfm, a frontend and a backend. In fact this simply formalises what we've been doing behind the API's back. For example, as it stands crypto_alloc_ahash may use an actual ahash algorithm or a crypto_hash algorithm. Putting this in the API allows us to do this much more cleanly. The existing types will be converted across gradually. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
