Subject: [PATCH v2 2/2] crypto: virtio: Fix use-after-free in virtio_crypto_skcipher_finalize_req()

The system'll crash when the users insmod crypto/tcrypto.ko with mode=155
( testing "authenc(hmac(sha1),cbc(aes))" ). It's caused by reuse the memory
of request structure.

In crypto_authenc_init_tfm(), the reqsize is set to:
  [PART 1] sizeof(authenc_request_ctx) +
  [PART 2] ictx->reqoff +
  [PART 3] MAX(ahash part, skcipher part)
and the 'PART 3' is used by both ahash and skcipher in turn.

When the virtio_crypto driver finish skcipher req, it'll call ->complete
callback(in crypto_finalize_skcipher_request) and then free its
resources whose pointers are recorded in 'skcipher parts'.

However, the ->complete is 'crypto_authenc_encrypt_done' in this case,
it will use the 'ahash part' of the request and change its content,
so virtio_crypto driver will get the wrong pointer after ->complete
finish and mistakenly free some other's memory. So the system will crash
when these memory will be used again.

The resources which need to be cleaned up are not used any more. But the
pointers of these resources may be changed in the function
"crypto_finalize_skcipher_request". Thus release specific resources before
calling this function.
