All ciphers implemented in Linux have a block size less than or
equal to 16 bytes and the most demanding hw require 16 bytes
alignment for the block buffer.
We avoid 2 VLAs[1] by always allocating 16 bytes with 16 bytes
alignment, unless the architecture supports efficient unaligned
accesses.
We also check the selected cipher at instance creation time, if
it doesn't comply with these limits, we fail the creation.

Can we pull this out into a header file, I think this would cover

crypto/cipher.c: In function ‘cipher_crypt_unaligned’:
crypto/cipher.c:70:2: warning: ISO C90 forbids variable length array ‘buffer’ [-Wvla]
   u8 buffer[size + alignmask];
   ^~

Yeah, I'll send a patchset that includes the fix for crypto/cipher.c too.

Thank you for the suggestion :)
