Follow up to #1353. I noticed that recommended dedicating a full hash block to the key and random bytes to prevent side channel attacks (I don't recall that from the paper I had previously read). This is also similar to how keys work in blake2b, and again there's really no reason not to do it.

That paper was for SHA-512, though its strategies are likely applicable to blake2b (and the block size is the same for both).
