Specifically something like this: https://git.zx2c4.com/linux-dev/commit/?h=siphash&id=978213351f9633bd1e3d1fdc3f19d28e36eeac90 That only leaves two more uses of "cryptohash" to consider, but they require a bit of help. First, sha_transform in net/ipv6/addrconf.c. That might be a straight-forward conversion to SipHash, but perhaps not; I need to look closely and think about it. The next is sha_transform in kernel/bpf/core.c. I really have no idea what's going on with the eBPF stuff, so that will take a bit longer to study. Maybe sha1 is fine in the end there? I'm not sure yet.
