Actually this test really is broken.  Even though empty requests
are legal, they should never be done with no write(2) at all.
Because this fundamentally breaks the use of a blocking read(2)
to wait for more data.

Granted this has been broken since 2017 but I'm not going to
reintroduce this just because of a broken test case.

So please either remove af_alg02 or fix it by adding a control
message through sendmsg(2).


Some user-space programs rely on crypto requests that have no
control metadata.  This broke when a check was added to require
the presence of control metadata with the ctx->init flag.

This patch fixes the regression by setting ctx->init as long as
one sendmsg(2) has been made, with or without a control message.
