2008-01-11[CRYPTO] authenc: Move enckeylen into key itselfHerbert Xu1-0/+27
Having enckeylen as a template parameter makes it a pain for hardware devices that implement ciphers with many key sizes since each one would have to be registered separately. Since the authenc algorithm is mainly used for legacy purposes where its key is going to be constructed out of two separate keys, we can in fact embed this value into the key itself. This patch does this by prepending an rtnetlink header to the key that contains the encryption key length. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
