I do not think that this check is necessary. There is no FIPS requirement or 
IG that mandates this (unlike the XTS key check).

If there would be such requirement, we would need a common service function 
for all TDES implementations

Use xts_check_key.

Is this test vector business really needed? Why do you think that testmgr.c is 
not sufficient? Other successful FIPS validations of the kernel crypto API 
managed without such special code.

Also, your entire API seems to implement the approach that if there is a self 
test error, you disable the cipher functions, but leave the rest in-tact. The 
standard kernel crypto API handling logic is to simply panic the kernel. Is it 
really necessary to implement a special case for your driver?
