Had a few surprises with the documentation, particularly with
HMAC-SHA256 being available but not realising until I dug into the

The primary patch documents every type available to hmac_init.

I'm less sure about whether the second patch as it adds an entry for
each sha*_mac function.  Is there a desire to keep both types of
interface standard in the long run?  Or is the more general hmac_init
suitable enough?
