Hello Vegard,

I don't think this is the right fix, to be honest. The crypto library
functions have no dependencies at all on the crypto API, so I think it
would be better to do something like the below:

diff --git a/crypto/Kconfig b/crypto/Kconfig
index 536df4b6b825..b79de4820ce9 100644
--- a/crypto/Kconfig
+++ b/crypto/Kconfig
@@ -1919,9 +1919,10 @@ config CRYPTO_STATS
 config CRYPTO_HASH_INFO
        bool

-source "lib/crypto/Kconfig"
 source "drivers/crypto/Kconfig"
 source "crypto/asymmetric_keys/Kconfig"
 source "certs/Kconfig"

 endif  # if CRYPTO
+
+source "lib/crypto/Kconfig"
