[PATCH] crypto: pcrypt: Fix possible deadlock in padata_sysfs_release




There is a deadlock issue in pcrypt_init_padata(),

pcrypt_init_padata()
    cpus_read_lock()
      padata_free()
        padata_sysfs_release()
          cpus_read_lock()

Narrow rcu_read_lock/unlock() and move put_online_cpus()
before padata_free() to fix it.
