They've always been split, but there's a configure option to combine
them at installation time.  (That's one of several reasons to base
patches on git master.)

Right, you do need Completion/ there, and what I wrote above won't do
that.  Sorry about that.  (I based that glob on the $ZDOTDIR/.zshenv
I use for development, but reduced it too much.)

Yes, that's correct: _arguments is coupled to the C implementation of
the "compargumetns" builtin.  Sorry again; I'd forgotten about that.
(To use 5.8 binaries with master's _arguments, the third argument in
calls to «comparguments -W» needs to be removed.)

Your MUA inserted hard line breaks in the patch, which corrupted it.
For future reference, either configure your MUA not to wrap line breaks
and not to strip trailing spaces, or send patches as an attachment named
*.txt [that's the most portable way to ensure a texty MIME type, which
helps recipients' MUAs].

This variable is set globally.  It should be declared local («typeset -a»).

On my system the array has several elements with the value "aes" (as
well as one "__aes").  Is that intentional?  If not, adding -U to the
array declaration will squash duplicates.

There's no variable «ret» in this function.  However, the call to
_describe is in any case the last thing in the function, so it'll be
easier to delete this line entirely.

Further question.  I smoke tested this by trying to format a loop device
with various hashes/ciphers from the given lists, but got some errors:

% print -r -- ${${${(M)${(s:name:)${(M)${(f)"$(</proc/crypto)"}:#(name|type)*}}:#*: shash*}#*: }%% *}
crc32c crct10dif crc32 crc32c __ghash hmac(sha256) hmac(sha1) crct10dif sha224 sha256 sha1 md5 digest_null
% /sbin/cryptsetup luksFormat $PWD/loop key -c aes -h crc32c
Requested hash crc32c is not supported.
Failed to set pbkdf parameters.
zsh: exit 1     /sbin/cryptsetup luksFormat $PWD/loop key -c aes -h crc32c
% /sbin/cryptsetup luksFormat $PWD/loop key  -c aes -h "hmac(sha1)" 
Requested hash hmac(sha1) is not supported.
Failed to set pbkdf parameters.
zsh: exit 1     /sbin/cryptsetup luksFormat $PWD/loop key -c aes -h "hmac(sha1)"

(That said, I haven't been able to get luksFormat to succeed with _any_
set of arguments, so there might be some flaw in my testing.)

There's also a note in cryptsetup(8):

So, two questions:

- Are there 'shash' entries in /proc/crypto that _shouldn't_ be offered
  as completions?

- Are there hash algorithms that would be accepted as arguments to the
  -h option that aren't listed in /proc/crypto?
