Bug Description

The following kernel config options are disabled in linux-image-4.4.0-25-generic_4.4.0-25.44_arm64.deb and earlier. I ask that these config options to be turned on or set to use as module so that a kernel running on hardware that supports the instructions will use them. These modules use module_cpu_feature_match() so it should fall back to using the generic versions when run on hardware that does not have the instructions.

CRYPTO_CRC32_ARM64
CRYPTO_AES_ARM64_CE
CRYPTO_AES_ARM64_CE_CCM
CRYPTO_AES_ARM64_CE_BLK

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-xenial' to 'verification-done-xenial'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!

Installed kernel and ran perf top -z while filtered on symbols containing "crc32". I see the symbol crc32c_arm64_le_hw instead of __crc32_le on hardware with CRC32 instruction support, so the change to the kernel is working. Thank you.
