crypto: aesni_intel - improve lrw and xts performance by utilizing parallel AES-NI hardware pipelines
Use parallel LRW and XTS encryption facilities to better utilize AES-NI hardware pipelines and gain extra performance. Tcrypt benchmark results (async), old vs new ratios: Intel Core i5-2450M CPU (fam: 6, model: 42, step: 7) aes:128bit lrw:256bit xts:256bit size lrw-enc lrw-dec xts-dec xts-dec 16B 0.99x 1.00x 1.22x 1.19x 64B 1.38x 1.50x 1.58x 1.61x 256B 2.04x 2.02x 2.27x 2.29x 1024B 2.56x 2.54x 2.89x 2.92x 8192B 2.85x 2.99x 3.40x 3.23x aes:192bit lrw:320bit xts:384bit size lrw-enc lrw-dec xts-dec xts-dec 16B 1.08x 1.08x 1.16x 1.17x 64B 1.48x 1.54x 1.59x 1.65x 256B 2.18x 2.17x 2.29x 2.28x 1024B 2.67x 2.67x 2.87x 3.05x 8192B 2.93x 2.84x 3.28x 3.33x aes:256bit lrw:348bit xts:512bit size lrw-enc lrw-dec xts-dec xts-dec 16B 1.07x 1.07x 1.18x 1.19x 64B 1.56x 1.56x 1.70x 1.71x 256B 2.22x 2.24x 2.46x 2.46x 1024B 2.76x 2.77x 3.13x 3.05x 8192B 2.99x 3.05x 3.40x 3.30x Cc: Huang Ying <ying.huang@intel.com> Signed-off-by: Jussi Kivilinna <jussi.kivilinna@mbnet.fi> Reviewed-by: Kim Phillips <kim.phillips@freescale.com> Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
