Subject: [PATCH v5 21/45] crypto: pcrypt - Protect access to cpu_online_mask
 with get/put_online_cpus()

The pcrypt_aead_init_tfm() function access the cpu_online_mask without
disabling CPU hotplug. And it looks like it can afford to sleep, so use
the get/put_online_cpus() APIs to protect against CPU hotplug.
