Sigh... yes, these were left in because I I thought it might be
interesting to bring support
for these algorithms (including a generic implementation) into
dm-crypt but alas, there seems
to be no interest.

If it's OK with you instead of this patch I'll send a patch series
that also removes the support for
these from the driver, not just the registration, as there is no point
in carrying dead code.
