What do you mean? The driver should return a 0 ?

I was anyways planning on sending an email to the list with these 
queries. But since you asked,  these are my observations with fuzz 
testing which I have been doing quite a bit now (I am also working on 
adding a few qualcomm AEAD algorithms support in mainline).

- if the generic algorithm supports 0 length messages and the 
transformation I am testing does not, the test framework throws an error 
and stops.
- key support mismatch between the generic algorithm vs my algorithm 
/engine also does the same thing.For eg, Qualcomm CE engine does not 
support any three keys being same for triple des algorithms. Where as a 
two key 3des is a valid scenario for generic algorithm(k1=k3). Another 
example is hardware engine not supporting AES192.

How are these scenarios usually handled ? Why not allow the test 
framework to proceed with the testing if the algorithm does not support 
a particular scenario ?
