SubjectRe: [PATCH net-next v4 18/20] crypto: port ChaCha20 to Zinc

Hi Jason,

I did some trivial benchmarking with tcrypt for the ChaCha20Poly1305
AEAD as used by IPsec. This is on a box with AVX2, which is probably
the configuration mostly used these days. With Zinc I get:

Using the existing implementation, this was:

I've also experimented with the SIMD context save/restore amortization
from patch one on the existing implementation:

For large blocks your implementation is faster; for typical IPsec MTUs
this degrades performance by ~10% and more.
