Fix strict aliasing issue with the internal SHA-1 implementation
Need to define the workspace buffer properly to allow compiler to handle strict aliasing between the incoming unsigned char[64] buffer as an u32 array. The previous version built with strict aliasing enabled can result in SHA-1 producing incorrect results and consequently, with 4-way handshake failing. This is based on a report and patch from Dan Williams <dcbw@redhat.com> but with a different type (the union) used as a fix to avoid needing extra type casting. Discovered as part of the investigation of: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=494262#c32 if sha1 is built with gcc without turning off strict aliasing, it will fail to correctly generate the hashes and will fail its own testcases as well. Signed-off-by: Dan Williams <dcbw@redhat.com> (cherry picked from commit 6d798e8b7e748935e10262566dc9b6ff02ac7d31)
