TBH, I completely forgot to add this... :)

Committed to git - by default configure fails with
checking linux/if_alg.h usability... no
checking linux/if_alg.h presence... no
checking for linux/if_alg.h... no
configure: error: You need Linux kernel headers with userspace crypto interface. (Or use --disable-kernel_crypto.)

The switch --disable-kernel_crypto completely removes support,
so you can compile it with old kernel or without kernel headers.
(But no cipher benchmark and no tcrypt will be available.)

Added requirement for this tool otherwise test is skipped.
(Test are intended for experienced users or distro maintainers only anyway.)
