kcapi_aead_init - initialization of cipher handle
int kcapi_aead_init(struct kcapi_handle ** handle, const char * ciphername, uint32_t flags);
handle [out] cipher handle filled during the call ciphername [in] kernel crypto API cipher name as specified in /proc/crypto flags [in] flags specifying the type of cipher handle
This function initializes an AEAD cipher handle and establishes the connection to the kernel. On success, a pointer to kcapi_handle object is returned in *handle. Function kcapi_aead_destroy should be called afterwards to free resources. return 0 upon success; -ENOENT - algorithm not available; -EOPNOTSUPP - AF_ALG family not available; -EINVAL - accept syscall failed -ENOMEM - cipher handle cannot be allocated
