    This patch introduces the multi-buffer crypto daemon which is responsible
    for submitting crypto jobs in a work queue to the responsible multi-buffer
    crypto algorithm.  The idea of the multi-buffer algorihtm is to put
    data streams from multiple jobs in a wide (AVX2) register and then
    take advantage of SIMD instructions to do crypto computation on several
    buffers simultaneously.
    The multi-buffer crypto daemon is also responsbile for flushing the
    remaining buffers to complete the computation if no new buffers arrive
    for a while.
