And now that I come to think of it: you're changing the behavior : you
will now use a dispersion function on the key, which goes against the
intent expressed in this comment.

It might be good to change hash_add(), hash_add_rcu(),
hash_for_each_possible*() key parameter for a "hash" parameter, and let
the caller provide the hash value computed by the function they like as
parameter, rather than enforcing hash_32/hash_64.

Thoughts ?

Thanks,

Mathieu
