Subject: [PATCH v3 0/3] crypto: allow users to specify acomp hardware from a desired NUMA node

For a typical Linux server, probably there are multiple ZIP modules.
For example, numa node0 has a compressor, numa node2 has a same module.
Some drivers are automatically using the module near the CPU calling
acomp_alloc.
But it isn't necessarily correct. Just like memory allocation API like
kmalloc and kmalloc_node. Similar optimization may be done for crypto.

-v3:
  move to use kzalloc_node according to Herbert's comment
-v2:
  cleanup according to Jonathan Cameron's comment

Barry Song (3):
  crypto: permit users to specify numa node of acomp hardware
  crypto: hisilicon/zip - permit users to specify NUMA node
  mm/zswap: allocate acomp on the numa node committing acomp_req[1]

[1] This patch is againest a zswap patch which has not been merged yet:
 "[PATCH v3] mm/zswap: move to use crypto_acomp API for hardware
 acceleration"
