We also need an implementation of it that works fine for asfcrypt.c.
Or in other words, coming up with a public API is not enough, we must
also come up with a way to actually use it within FFmpeg.
Which is not really a problem since I don't mind if the structure of
AVDES/AVRC4 is public and AVAES is always on the heap so far, it
just seems bad to be inconsistent with AVAES and to have no concept of
how to allocate AVAES on the stack (unless we decide there is never any
need to allocate them on the stack).
