Sure thing. I've split the patches, and I believe that me going through
them a second time did them good, there are a few tiny changes over the
first version.

I split the patch in 4 parts (will send as replies to this mail) :
1) crypto_free_tfm related changes
2) kfree related changes
3) vfree related changes
4) whitespace changes
The whitespace changes ended up fairly bigger than initially. I expanded
the cleanup a bit. It's not a perfect, 100% complete cleanup, but it's IMO
a lot better than the originals.
