Imho, this and patch 6/8 is not really needed. Should there ever
another digest alg be used (doubt it), then you'd need a new nl
attribute and fdinfo line anyway to keep existing stuff intact.
Nobody made the claim that you can just change this underneath
and not respecting abi for existing applications when I read from
above that such apps now will get "forced" to notice a change.
