I agree with Doug. From my understanding, the intention of the patch is to allow the usage of md5 for non-security purposes, without being blocked by FIPS.
Right now, md5() calls running on a FIPS enabled kernel, are blocked without discrimination of the usage, that shall be ok for hashing purposes, and more performant than other methods. This patch provides the ability to continue using md5 just flagging it properly.
