mac[] is the combined digest/input buffer, and macp is the index into
it that keeps track on how much new input we have accumulated. I.e.,
instead of having a separate buffer of the same size, and accumulating
bytes until we can perform the XOR + AES transformation, the partial
input is accumulated into mac[] using XOR directly.
