No, this one is really accessed as int. But would probably benefit being
declared as uint32_t.

Yes. It was the first thing to do before changing its definition
(for alignment purpose especially).

Sorry about this.
I thought having the test suite OK was enough to prove this.

There's no other user than blk_SHA1_Update()

Readility: in blk_SHA1_Block(), the ctx->W array is used a 64 bytes len
array, so, AFAIK, there's no point of having it defined as a 16 int len.
It's disturbing while reading the code.

This could allows us to change the memcpy() call further:

@@ -246,7 +246,7 @@ void blk_SHA1_Update(blk_SHA_CTX *ctx, const void
*data, unsigned long len)
                unsigned int left = 64 - lenW;
                if (len < left)
                        left = len;
-               memcpy((char *)ctx->W + lenW, data, left);
+               memcpy(ctx->W + lenW, data, left);
                lenW = (lenW + left) & 63;
                if (lenW)
