[CRYPTO] padlock: Fix alignment fault in aes_crypt_copy
The previous patch fixed spurious read faults from occuring by copying the data if we happen to have a single block at the end of a page. It appears that gcc cannot guarantee 16-byte alignment in the kernel with __attribute__. The following report from Torben Viets shows a buffer that's only 8-byte aligned: > eneral protection fault: 0000 [#1] > Modules linked in: xt_TCPMSS xt_tcpmss iptable_mangle ipt_MASQUERADE > xt_tcpudp xt_mark xt_state iptable_nat nf_nat nf_conntrack_ipv4 > iptable_filter ip_tables x_tables pppoe pppox af_packet ppp_generic slhc > aes_i586 > CPU: 0 > EIP: 0060:[<c035b828>] Not tainted VLI > EFLAGS: 00010292 ( #7) > EIP is at aes_crypt_copy+0x28/0x40 > eax: f7639ff0 ebx: f6c24050 ecx: 00000001 edx: f6c24030 > esi: f7e89dc8 edi: f7639ff0 ebp: 00010000 esp: f7e89dc8 Since the hardware must have 16-byte alignment, the following patch fixes this by open coding the alignment adjustment.
