parent[CRYPTO] Add support for low-level multi-block operations (diff)
[CRYPTO] Add alignmask for low-level cipher implementations
The VIA Padlock device requires the input and output buffers to be aligned on 16-byte boundaries. This patch adds the alignmask attribute for low-level cipher implementations to indicate their alignment requirements. The mid-level crypt() function will copy the input/output buffers if they are not aligned correctly before they are passed to the low-level implementation. Strictly speaking, some of the software implementations require the buffers to be aligned on 4-byte boundaries as they do 32-bit loads. However, it is not clear whether it is better to copy the buffers or pay the penalty for unaligned loads/stores. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au> Signed-off-by: David S.
