Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.5 380/542] crypto: essiv - fix AEAD capitalization and preposition use in help text

From: Geert Uytterhoeven <>

[ Upstream commit ab3d436bf3e9d05f58ceaa85ff7475bfcd6e45af ]

"AEAD" is capitalized everywhere else.
Use "an" when followed by a written or spoken vowel.

Fixes: be1eb7f78aa8fbe3 ("crypto: essiv - create wrapper template for ESSIV generation")
