[Patch V5 0/7] crypto: AES CBC multibuffer implementation

In this patch series, we introduce AES CBC encryption that is parallelized on
x86_64 cpu with XMM registers. The multi-buffer technique encrypt 8 data
streams in parallel with SIMD instructions. Decryption is handled as in the
existing AESNI Intel CBC implementation which can already parallelize decryption
even for a single data stream.

Please see the multi-buffer whitepaper for details of the technique:

It is important that any driver uses this algorithm properly for scenarios
where we have many data streams that can fill up the data lanes most of the
time. It shouldn't be used when only a single data stream is expected mostly.
Otherwise we may incur extra delays when we have frequent gaps in data lanes,
causing us to wait till data come in to fill the data lanes before initiating
encryption.  We may have to wait for flush operations to commence when no new
data come in after some wait time. However we keep this extra delay to a
minimum by opportunistically flushing the unfinished jobs if crypto daemon is
the only active task running on a cpu.

By using this technique, we saw a throughput increase of up to 5.7x under
optimal conditions when we have fully loaded encryption jobs filling up all
the data lanes.

Change Log:

1. Use an async implementation of the inner algorithm instead of sync and use
the latest skcipher interface instead of the older blkcipher interface.
(we have picked up this work after a while)

1. Make the decrypt path also use ablkcpher walk.

1. Use ablkcipher_walk helpers to walk the scatter gather list
and eliminated needs to modify blkcipher_walk for multibuffer cipher

1. Update cpu feature check to make sure SSE is supported
2. Fix up unloading of aes-cbc-mb module to properly free memory
