parent[CRYPTO] Update IV correctly for Padlock CBC encryption (diff)
[CRYPTO] Add null short circuit to crypto_free_tfm
As far as I'm aware there's a general concensus that functions that are responsible for freeing resources should be able to cope with being passed a NULL pointer. This makes sense as it removes the need for all callers to check for NULL, thus elliminating the bugs that happen when some forget (safer to just check centrally in the freeing function) and it also makes for smaller code all over due to the lack of all those NULL checks. This patch makes it safe to pass the crypto_free_tfm() function a NULL pointer. Once this patch is applied we can start removing the NULL checks from the callers.
