The drivers for crypto accelerators in drivers/crypto all implement skciphers
of an asynchronous nature, given that they are backed by hardware DMA that
completes asynchronously wrt the execution flow.

However, in many cases, any fallbacks they allocate are limited to the
synchronous variety, which rules out the use of SIMD implementations of
AES in ECB, CBC and XTS modes, given that they are usually built on top
of the asynchronous SIMD helper, which queues requests for asynchronous
completion if they are issued from a context that does not permit the use
of the SIMD register file.

This may result in sub-optimal AES implementations to be selected as
fallbacks, or even less secure ones if the only synchronous alternative
is table based, and therefore not time invariant.

So switch all these cases over to the asynchronous API, by moving the
subrequest into the skcipher request context, and permitting it to
complete asynchronously via the caller provided completion function.

Patch #1 is not related, but touches the same driver as #2 so it is
included anyway. Patch #13 removes another sync skcipher allocation by
switching to the AES library interface.

Only OMAP and CCP were tested on actual hardware - the others are build
tested only.

v3:
- disregard the fallback skcipher_request when taking the request context size
  for TFMs that don't need the fallback at all (picoxcell, qce)
- fix error handling in fallback skcipher allocation and remove pointless
  memset()s (qce)

v2:
- address issue found by build robot in patch #7
- add patch #13
- rebase onto cryptodev/master
