Many users of kernel async. crypto services have a pattern of starting an async. crypto op and than using a completion to wait for it to end.
This patch set simplifies this common use case in two ways: First, by separating the return codes of the case where a request is queued to a backlog due to the provider being busy (-EBUSY) from the case the request has failed due to the provider being busy and backlogging is not enabled (-EAGAIN). Next, this change is than built on to create a generic API to wait for a async. crypto operation to complete. The end result is a smaller code base and an API that is easier to use and more difficult to get wrong. The patch set was boot tested on x86_64 and arm64 which at the very least tests the crypto users via testmgr and tcrypt but I do note that I do not have access to some of the HW whose drivers are modified nor do I claim I was able to test all of the corner cases. The patch set is based upon linux-next release tagged next-20170808. Changes from v3: - Instead of changing the return code to indicate backlog queueing, change the return code to indicate transient busy state, as suggested by Herbert Xu. Changes from v2: - Patch title changed from "introduce crypto wait for async op" to better reflect the current state. - Rebase on top of latest linux-next. - Add a new return code of -EIOCBQUEUED for backlog queueing, as suggested by Herbert Xu. - Transform more users to the new API. - Update the drbg change to account for new init as indicated by Stephan Muller. Changes from v1: - Address review comments from Eric Biggers. - Separated out bug fixes of existing code and rebase on top of that patch set. - Rename 'ecr' to 'wait' in fscrypto code. - Split patch introducing the new API from the change moving over the algif code which it originated from to the new API. - Inline crypto_wait_req(). - Some code indentation fixes.
