Doing some archeology on this driver, it turns out that the FPU
wrapper was introduced to support combining the generic CTR, LRW, XTS
and PCBC chaining modes with the AES-NI core transform. In the mean
time, CTR, LRW and XTS support have been implemented natively, which
leaves pcbc-aes-aesni as the only remaining user of the fpu template.

Since there are no users of pcbc(aes) in the kernel, could we perhaps
just remove this driver and all the special handling we have for it in
aesni-intel_glue.c?

If not, or in case we prefer to defer that to the next release:
