arm64: crypto: increase AES interleave to 4x



This patch increases the interleave factor for parallel AES modes
to 4x. This improves performance on Cortex-A57 by ~35%. This is
due to the 3-cycle latency of AES instructions on the A57's
relatively deep pipeline (compared to Cortex-A53 where the AES
instruction latency is only 2 cycles).

At the same time, disable inline expansion of the core AES functions,
as the performance benefit of this feature is negligible.

  Measured on AMD Seattle (using tcrypt.ko mode=500 sec=1):

  Baseline (2x interleave, inline expansion)
  ------------------------------------------
  testing speed of async cbc(aes) (cbc-aes-ce) decryption
  test 4 (128 bit key, 8192 byte blocks): 95545 operations in 1 seconds
  test 14 (256 bit key, 8192 byte blocks): 68496 operations in 1 seconds

  This patch (4x interleave, no inline expansion)
  -----------------------------------------------
  testing speed of async cbc(aes) (cbc-aes-ce) decryption
  test 4 (128 bit key, 8192 byte blocks): 124735 operations in 1 seconds
  test 14 (256 bit key, 8192 byte blocks): 92328 operations in 1 seconds
