I was not sure whether to cover the explanation of the API in a separate 
document or whether to add the function documentation to 
include/linux/crypto.h.

With the first attempt of the documentation, I applied the least invasive 
approach. If it is requested, I would modify the patch such that appropriate 
source code comments to the functions in the header file are added.
