crypto: aesni-intel - Ported implementation to x86-32
The AES-NI instructions are also available in legacy mode so the 32-bit architecture may profit from those, too. To illustrate the performance gain here's a short summary of a dm-crypt speed test on a Core i7 M620 running at 2.67GHz comparing both assembler implementations: x86: i568 aes-ni delta ECB, 256 bit: 93.8 MB/s 123.3 MB/s +31.4% CBC, 256 bit: 84.8 MB/s 262.3 MB/s +209.3% LRW, 256 bit: 108.6 MB/s 222.1 MB/s +104.5% XTS, 256 bit: 105.0 MB/s 205.5 MB/s +95.7% Additionally, due to some minor optimizations, the 64-bit version also got a minor performance gain as seen below: x86-64: old impl. new impl. delta ECB, 256 bit: 121.1 MB/s 123.0 MB/s +1.5% CBC, 256 bit: 285.3 MB/s 290.8 MB/s +1.9% LRW, 256 bit: 263.7 MB/s 265.3 MB/s +0.6% XTS, 256 bit: 251.1 MB/s 255.3 MB/s +1.7% Signed-off-by: Mathias Krause <minipli@googlemail.com> Reviewed-by: Huang Ying <ying.huang@intel.com> Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
