I posted a patchset to support HiSilicon compression engine: As Herber Xu suggested, it should use
new crypto acomp API which uses sgl as data input and output. However, our
hardware can not handle compress head for input/output data, so I need split
input/output sgl firstly which is not mapped sgl.

New version of HiSilicon compression engine driver has not been posted to
community yet. I will do this later.
