[CRYPTO] aead: Add givcrypt operations
This patch adds the underlying givcrypt operations for aead and associated support elements. The rationale is identical to that of the skcipher givcrypt operations, i.e., sometimes only the algorithm knows how the IV should be generated. A new request type aead_givcrypt_request is added which contains an embedded aead_request structure with two new elements to support this operation. The new elements are seq and giv. The seq field should contain a strictly increasing 64-bit integer which may be used by certain IV generators as an input value. The giv field will be used to store the generated IV. It does not need to obey the alignment requirements of the algorithm because it's not used during the operation. The existing iv field must still be available as it will be used to store intermediate IVs and the output IV if chaining is desired. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
