dm crypt: fix cpu hotplug crash by removing per-cpu structure
commit 610f2de3559c383caf8fbbf91e9968102dff7ca0 upstream. The DM crypt target used per-cpu structures to hold pointers to a ablkcipher_request structure. The code assumed that the work item keeps executing on a single CPU, so it didn't use synchronization when accessing this structure. If a CPU is disabled by writing 0 to /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu*/online, the work item could be moved to another CPU. This causes dm-crypt crashes, like the following, because the code starts using an incorrect ablkcipher_request: smpboot: CPU 7 is now offline BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000130 IP: [<ffffffffa1862b3d>] crypt_convert+0x12d/0x3c0 [dm_crypt] ...

The structure ablkcipher_request is accessed via a pointer from convert_context. Consequently, if the work item is rescheduled to a different CPU, the thread still uses the same ablkcipher_request. This change may undermine performance improvements intended by commit c0297721 ("dm crypt: scale to multiple cpus") on select hardware. In practice no performance difference was observed on recent hardware. But regardless, correctness is more important than performance.
