[CRYPTO] xts: XTS blockcipher mode implementation without partial blocks
XTS currently considered to be the successor of the LRW mode by the IEEE1619 workgroup. LRW was discarded, because it was not secure if the encyption key itself is encrypted with LRW. XTS does not have this problem. The implementation is pretty straightforward, a new function was added to gf128mul to handle GF(128) elements in ble format. Four testvectors from the specification http://grouper.ieee.org/groups/1619/email/pdf00086.pdf were added, and they verify on my system.
