I find this whole memory/list management to be very disorganised.
ops->register_alg() is supposed to allocate this item--more precisely,
multiple items--using something that must be able to be kfree'd
directly, register it with the crypto core, and put it on this list
manually.  Here we unregister/remove/free this in the core.  Josh's
recommendation of a unregister_alg callback might help, but it all
remains a bit unclear with register_alg/unregister_alg managing X
algorithms per call. 

Additionally, above you have qce_ops, which clearly defines the
operations for specific algorithms types/groups, which in later patches
are shown to be seperated out into independent implementations.

>From what I can tell, this seems to be a framework with built-in yet
independent crypto implementations which call the crypto API directly.

It would be more logical to me if this was seperated out into a
"library/core" API, with the individual implementations as platform
drivers of their own.  Then they can register with the core, managing
memory how they please.

What am I missing?
