[CRYPTO] blkcipher: Remove alignment restriction on block size
Previously we assumed for convenience that the block size is a multiple of the algorithm's required alignment. With the pending addition of CTR this will no longer be the case as the block size will be 1 due to it being a stream cipher. However, the alignment requirement will be that of the underlying implementation which will most likely be greater than 1. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
