This patch should fix the regression:

---8<---
Some user-space programs rely on crypto requests that have no
control metadata.  This broke when a check was added to require
the presence of control metadata with the ctx->init flag.

This patch fixes the regression by removing the ctx->init flag.

This means that we do not distinguish the case of no metadata
as opposed to an empty request.  IOW it is always assumed that
if you call recv(2) before sending metadata that you are working
with an empty request.

Since we are on this subject,
LTP af_alg02  test case fails on stable 4.9 and stable 4.4
This is not a regression because the test case has been failing from
the beginning.

Is this test case expected to fail on stable 4.9 and 4.4 ?
or any chance to fix this on these older branches ?

Test output:
af_alg02.c:52: BROK: Timed out while reading from request socket.
