[CRYPTO] skcipher: Add crypto_grab_skcipher interface
Note: From now on the collective of ablkcipher/blkcipher/givcipher will be known as skcipher, i.e., symmetric key cipher. The name blkcipher has always been much of a misnomer since it supports stream ciphers too. This patch adds the function crypto_grab_skcipher as a new way of getting an ablkcipher spawn. The problem is that previously we did this in two steps, first getting the algorithm and then calling crypto_init_spawn. This meant that each spawn user had to be aware of what type and mask to use for these two steps. This is difficult and also presents a problem when the type/mask changes as they're about to be for IV generators. The new interface does both steps together just like crypto_alloc_ablkcipher. As a side-effect this also allows us to be stronger on type enforcement for spawns. For now this is only done for ablkcipher but it's trivial to extend for other types. This patch also moves the type/mask logic for skcipher into the helpers crypto_skcipher_type and crypto_skcipher_mask. Finally this patch introduces the function crypto_require_sync to determine whether the user is specifically requesting a sync algorithm. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
