The clearing of the OKM memory buffer in case of an error is already
performed by the HKDF implementation crypto_hkdf_expand. Thus, the
code clearing is not needed any more in the file system code base.

Shoudn't this just be folded into the previous patch, which converted
fscrypt_hkdf_expand() to use crypto_hkdf_expand() in the first place?
