This message doesn't help at all when you have a kernel that doesn't
have it enabled and thus you can't find any module by that name. (And
you CAN have a kernel with it build in, no module in that case too)
The option for algif_skcipher is:
"Cryptographic API" -> "User-space interface for symmetric key cipher algorithms"
The other option (that is responsible for af_alg) is hidden and
automatically 'select'ed by activating the option above.
