chacha20poly1305: use slow crypto on -rt kernels
In rt kernels, spinlocks call schedule(), which means preemption can't be disabled. The FPU disables preemption. Hence, we can either restructure things to move the calls to kernel_fpu_begin/end to be really close to the actual crypto routines, or we can do the slower lazier solution of just not using the FPU at all on -rt kernels. This patch goes with the latter lazy solution. The reason why we don't place the calls to kernel_fpu_begin/end close to the crypto routines in the first place is that they're very expensive, as it usually involves a call to XSAVE. So on sane kernels, we benefit from only having to call it once.
