These are just some library functions, so they shouldn't be user-selectable.

Why have the ikm parameter if it's not supported?

Well, crypto_shash_setkey() will succeed if the hash algorithm takes a "key".
That doesn't necessarily mean that it's a MAC. It could be crc32 or xxhash64,
for example; those interpret the "key" as the initial value.

This should be a WARN() since it indicates a kernel bug.
