AF_ALG + Cryptodev-linux

wolfSSL has added support for using the AF_ALG and Cryptodev-linux Linux modules. These are modules that can be loaded into a Linux kernel and allow access to the Linux crypto drivers. Having access to the Linux crypto drivers gives the ability to leverage hardware acceleration that the kernel has in place. One such use case being when running Linux on an embedded i.MX6 IoT board and wanting to access CAAM drivers provided by Linux.

To build wolfSSL with AF_ALG support use the enable option --enable-afalg
To build with Cryptodev-linux support use --enable-devcrypto.

The current supported algorithms are SHA256 and AES.
