Subject: [PATCH] crypto: arm/aes-neonbs - fix issue with v2.22 and older assembler
Date: Thu, 19 Jan 2017 12:23:32 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

The GNU assembler for ARM version 2.22 or older fails to infer the
element size from the vmov instructions, and aborts the build in
the following way;

.../aes-neonbs-core.S: Assembler messages:

.../aes-neonbs-core.S:818: Error: bad type for scalar -- `vmov q2l[0],r7'

Fix this by setting the element size explicitly, by replacing vmov with
