I do not think this patch is right. It looks like a revert of a useful
patch for TCP zero copy. Given the time it took to discover this
regression, I bet tcp zero copy has more users than AF_ALG, by 5 or 6
order of magnitude ;)

Here we want to make the difference between the two flags, not merge
them.

If AF_ALG do not care of the difference, try instead :

diff --git a/crypto/algif_hash.c b/crypto/algif_hash.c
index ef5356cd280a..850246206b12 100644
