I have done that, but as indicated with an email to Al, I cannot get his 
patch for skcipher and hash to work. Similarly, my modification for the 
AEAD does not work either. So, I do not see that Al's patch can be 
merged as is.

Therefore, I have not submitted my patch as Al mentioned he wanted to 
look into his patchset.
