[CRYPTO] api: Allow replacement when registering new algorithms
Herbert Xu [Sun, 21 May 2006 01:57:20 +0000 (11:57 +1000)]
We already allow asynchronous removal of existing algorithm modules.  By
allowing the replacement of existing algorithms, we can replace algorithms
without having to wait for for all existing users to complete.
