    ("kernel: use macros from compiler.h instead of __attribute__((...))")
    
    I submitted 4 total patches. They are part of task I've taken up to
    increase compiler portability in the kernel. I've cleaned up the
    subsystems under /kernel /mm /block and /security, this patch targets
    /crypto.
    
    There is <linux/compiler.h> which provides macros for various gcc specific
    constructs. Eg: __weak for __attribute__((weak)). I've cleaned all
    instances of gcc specific attributes with the right macros for the crypto
    subsystem.
    
    I had to make one additional change into compiler-gcc.h for the case when
    one wants to use this: __attribute__((aligned) and not specify an alignment
    factor. From the gcc docs, this will result in the largest alignment for
    that data type on the target machine so I've named the macro
    __aligned_largest. Please advise if another name is more appropriate.
