$ grep -r set_cipher_config0 -n

shows a healthy mix of DESC_DIRECTION_ENCRYPT_ENCRYPT,
HASH_DIGEST_RESULT_LITTLE_ENDIAN, and DRV_CRYPTO_DIRECTION_ENCRYPT
(all enumeration values of different enums).

Looks like a lot fewer call sites using DRV_HASH_HW_GHASH; same value
as DRV_CIPHER_OFB (different enum), but can a block cipher mode and a
hash be valid values for pdesc->word[4]?

This also looks like the simplest fix to me, assuming the values of
all of these enums are valid for whatever pdesc->word[4] is.  Can the
maintainers explain what is CC7x-DESC what the comment makes reference
to?
