Hi Ben,

Please describe your threat model or use case for this change.

Note that in Libgcrypt we put extensive work into wiping only memory
with sensitive information.  We also make sure to wipe the lowest number
of bytes possible so to avoid cache pollution.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
