crypto/armv8: add PMD optimized for ARMv8 processors
This patch introduces crypto poll mode driver using ARMv8 cryptographic extensions. CPU compatibility with this driver is detected in run-time and virtual crypto device will not be created if CPU doesn't provide: AES, SHA1, SHA2 and NEON. This PMD is optimized to provide performance boost for chained crypto operations processing, such as encryption + HMAC generation, decryption + HMAC validation. In particular, cipher only or hash only operations are not provided. The driver currently supports AES-128-CBC in combination with: SHA256 HMAC and SHA1 HMAC and relies on the external armv8_crypto library: Build ARMv8 crypto PMD if compiling for ARM64 and CONFIG_RTE_LIBRTE_PMD_ARMV8_CRYPTO option is enable in the configuration file. ARMV8_CRYPTO_LIB_PATH environment variable will point to the appropriate library directory. Signed-off-by: Zbigniew Bodek <> Reviewed-by: Jerin Jacob <>
