The data in the test file is a conversion of test data from
cryptsetup. Some are disabled since we don't support the
particular hash algorithms yet, but I've been enabling more,
as in this patch series. IMHO the '#if 0' is appropriate as
this is a marker for future todo items, and if I had deleted
the code as suggested, then whoever adds the extra algorithms
in the future will have to go and find the original test data,
and do a data conversion of it again which is just a waste of
