Subject: [PATCH 2/7] [IPSEC] ah: Remove keys from ah_data structure

[IPSEC] ah: Remove keys from ah_data structure

The keys are only used during initialisation so we don't need to carry them
in esp_data.  Since we don't have to allocate them again, there is no need
to place a limit on the authentication key length anymore.
