      [CRYPTO] digest: Added user API for new hash type · 055bcee3
      Herbert Xu authored
      The existing digest user interface is inadequate for support asynchronous
      operations.  For one it doesn't return a value to indicate success or
      failure, nor does it take a per-operation descriptor which is essential
      for the issuing of requests while other requests are still outstanding.
      This patch is the first in a series of steps to remodel the interface
      for asynchronous operations.
      For the ease of transition the new interface will be known as "hash"
      while the old one will remain as "digest".
      This patch also changes sg_next to allow chaining.

      [CRYPTO] scatterwalk: Prepare for block ciphers · 5c64097a
      Herbert Xu authored
      This patch prepares the scatterwalk code for use by the new block cipher
      Firstly it halves the size of scatter_walk on 32-bit platforms.  This
      is important as we allocate at least two of these objects on the stack
      for each block cipher operation.
      It also exports the symbols since the block cipher code can be built as
      a module.
      Finally there is a hack in scatterwalk_unmap that relies on progress
      being made.  Unfortunately, for hardware crypto we can't guarantee
      progress to be made since the hardware can fail.
      So this also gets rid of the hack by not advancing the address returned
      by scatterwalk_map.

      [CRYPTO] Add alignmask for low-level cipher implementations · 95477377
      Herbert Xu authored
      The VIA Padlock device requires the input and output buffers to
      be aligned on 16-byte boundaries.  This patch adds the alignmask
      attribute for low-level cipher implementations to indicate their
      alignment requirements.
      The mid-level crypt() function will copy the input/output buffers
      if they are not aligned correctly before they are passed to the
      low-level implementation.
      Strictly speaking, some of the software implementations require
      the buffers to be aligned on 4-byte boundaries as they do 32-bit
      loads.  However, it is not clear whether it is better to copy
      the buffers or pay the penalty for unaligned loads/stores.

      [CRYPTO] Add plumbing for multi-block operations · c774e93e
      Herbert Xu authored
      The VIA Padlock device is able to perform much better when multiple
      blocks are fed to it at once.  As this device offers an exceptional
      throughput rate it is worthwhile to optimise the infrastructure
      specifically for it.
      We shift the existing page-sized fast path down to the CBC/ECB functions.
      We can then replace the CBC/ECB functions with functions provided by the
      underlying algorithm that performs the multi-block operations.
      As a side-effect this improves the performance of large cipher operations
      for all existing algorithm implementations.  I've measured the gain to be
      around 5% for 3DES and 15% for AES.

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      Let it rip!
