Patch(2.5.50): Simplify crypto memory allocation

From: Adam J. Richter (
Date: Sun Dec 08 2002 - 04:27:27 EST

        The following patch deletes the unused
crypto_tfm.crt_work_block field and combines the remaining
two kmallocs done by crypto_alloc_tfm into one, a net
deletion of 25 lines.

        I've only verified that the kernel and the crpypto modules
still build. I don't currently use this code, although I'm
considering making a version of loop.c which would, which is why I
noticed this.

        Anyhow, if this patch turns out to work and looks OK, then
please integrate, queue it for Linus, etc., or let me know if you
would prefer that you or I follow some other course of action.
