qat: add driver for QuickAssist devices
This patch adds a PMD for the Intel Quick Assist Technology DH895xxC hardware accelerator. This patch depends on a QAT PF driver for device initialization. See the file docs/guides/cryptodevs/qat.rst for configuration details This patch supports a limited subset of QAT device functionality, currently supporting chaining of cipher and hash operations for the following algorithmsd: Cipher algorithms: - RTE_CRYPTO_CIPHER_AES_CBC (with 128-bit, 192-bit and 256-bit keys supported) Hash algorithms: - RTE_CRYPTO_AUTH_SHA1_HMAC - RTE_CRYPTO_AUTH_SHA256_HMAC - RTE_CRYPTO_AUTH_SHA512_HMAC - RTE_CRYPTO_AUTH_AES_XCBC_MAC Some limitation on this patchset which shall be contributed in a subsequent release: - Chained mbufs are not supported. - Hash only is not supported. - Cipher only is not supported. - Only in-place is currently supported (destination address is the same as source address). - Only supports session-oriented API implementation (session-less APIs are not supported).
