    crypto: add module.h to those files that are explicitly using it

    paulgortmaker authored
    Part of the include cleanups means that the implicit
    inclusion of module.h via device.h is going away.  So
    fix things up in advance.

    crypto: mark crypto workqueues CPU_INTENSIVE

    Tejun Heo authored herbertx committed
    kcrypto_wq and pcrypt->wq's are used to run ciphers and may consume
    considerable amount of CPU cycles.  Mark both as CPU_INTENSIVE so that
    they don't block other work items.
    As the workqueues are primarily used to burn CPU cycles, concurrency
    levels shouldn't matter much and are left at 1.  A higher value may be
    beneficial and needs investigation.

    crypto: api - Use dedicated workqueue for crypto subsystem

    Huang Ying authored herbertx committed
    Use dedicated workqueue for crypto subsystem
    A dedicated workqueue named kcrypto_wq is created to be used by crypto
    subsystem. The system shared keventd_wq is not suitable for
    encryption/decryption, because of potential starvation problem.
