I was expecting this question :) The thing is this define looks *a lot*
like the ones defined in other places in the crypto framework, such as
SKCIPHER_REQUEST_ON_STACK and AHASH_REQUEST_ON_STACK. Those haven't been
tackled down so far by the whole VLA removal so the idea was that the
same solution will apply to the 3 of them (and then I'm not really
adding a new one).

If you do have a suggestion on how to fix the 3 of them, I'll be glad to
make a patch for that, but I'm not sure there's an easy solution. And I
don't think I saw a patch on the mailing list about those defines.

Thanks,
Antoine
