Subject[PATCH v3 0/4] Patchset to use PCLMULQDQ to accelerate CRC-T10DIF checksum computation
Currently the CRC-T10DIF checksum is computed using a generic table lookup
algorithm. By switching the checksum to PCLMULQDQ based computation,
we can speedup the computation by 8x for checksumming 512 bytes and
even more for larger buffer size. This will improve performance of SCSI
drivers turning on the CRC-T10IDF checksum. In our SSD based experiments,
we have seen increase disk throughput by 3.5x with T10DIF for 512 byte
block size.

This patch set provides the x86_64 routine using PCLMULQDQ instruction
and switches the crc_t10dif library function to use the faster PCLMULQDQ
based routine when available.


1. Update the crct10dif crypto transform used in the crct10dif library in a safe way.
2. Load the accelerated t10dif transform for the x86_64 cpus that support it.
3. Added generic crct10dif crypto transform.

1. Get rid of unnecessary xmm registers save and restore and fix ENDPROC
position in PCLMULQDQ version of crc t10dif computation.
2. Fix URL to paper reference of CRC computation with PCLMULQDQ.
3. Add one additional tcrypt test case to exercise more code paths through
crc t10dif computation.
4. Fix config dependencies of CRYPTO_CRCT10DIF.

Thanks to Herbert Xu, Matthew Wilcox and Jussi Kivilinna who reviewed the patches and
Keith Busch for testing version 1 of the patch set.
