Subject: [PATCH RFC 0/4] crypto: engine - Permit to enqueue all async requests


The current crypto_engine support only ahash and ablkcipher.
My first patch which try to add skcipher was Nacked, it will add too many functions
and adding other algs(aead, asymetric_key) will make the situation worst.

This patchset remove all algs specific stuff and now only process generic crypto_async_request.

The requests handler function pointer are now moved out of struct engine and
are now stored directly in a crypto_engine_reqctx.

The original proposal of Herbert [1] cannot be done completly since the crypto_engine
could only dequeue crypto_async_request and it is impossible to access any request_ctx
without knowing the underlying request type.

So I do something near that was requested: adding crypto_engine_reqctx in TFM context.
Note that the current implementation expect that crypto_engine_reqctx
is the first member of the context.

The first patch convert the crypto engine with the new way,
while the following patchs convert the 3 existing users of crypto_engine.
Note that this split break bisection, so probably the final commit will be all merged.

The 3 latest patch were compile tested only, but the first is tested successfully
with my new sun8i-ce driver.
