crypto: xts - consolidate sanity check for keys
The patch centralizes the XTS key check logic into the service function xts_check_key which is invoked from the different XTS implementations. With this, the XTS implementations in ARM, ARM64, PPC and S390 have now a sanity check for the XTS keys similar to the other arches. In addition, this service function received a check to ensure that the key != the tweak key which is mandated by FIPS 140-2 IG A.9. As the check is not present in the standards defining XTS, it is only enforced in FIPS mode of the kernel. Signed-off-by: Stephan Mueller <> Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <>
