crypto: chacha20 - Add a SSSE3 SIMD variant for x86_64
Implements an x86_64 assembler driver for the ChaCha20 stream cipher. This single block variant works on a single state matrix using SSE instructions. It requires SSSE3 due the use of pshufb for efficient 8/16-bit rotate operations. For large messages, throughput increases by ~65% compared to chacha20-generic: testing speed of chacha20 (chacha20-generic) encryption test 0 (256 bit key, 16 byte blocks): 45089207 operations in 10 seconds (721427312 bytes) test 1 (256 bit key, 64 byte blocks): 43839521 operations in 10 seconds (2805729344 bytes) test 2 (256 bit key, 256 byte blocks): 12702056 operations in 10 seconds (3251726336 bytes) test 3 (256 bit key, 1024 byte blocks): 3371173 operations in 10 seconds (3452081152 bytes) test 4 (256 bit key, 8192 byte blocks): 422468 operations in 10 seconds (3460857856 bytes) testing speed of chacha20 (chacha20-simd) encryption test 0 (256 bit key, 16 byte blocks): 43141886 operations in 10 seconds (690270176 bytes) test 1 (256 bit key, 64 byte blocks): 46845874 operations in 10 seconds (2998135936 bytes) test 2 (256 bit key, 256 byte blocks): 18458512 operations in 10 seconds (4725379072 bytes) test 3 (256 bit key, 1024 byte blocks): 5360533 operations in 10 seconds (5489185792 bytes) test 4 (256 bit key, 8192 byte blocks): 692846 operations in 10 seconds (5675794432 bytes) Benchmark results from a Core i5-4670T.

+ ChaCha20 cipher algorithm, RFC7539.
+
+ ChaCha20 is a 256-bit high-speed stream cipher designed by Daniel J.
+ Bernstein and further specified in RFC7539 for use in IETF protocols.
+ This is the x86_64 assembler implementation using SIMD instructions.
