    crypto: engine - Handle the kthread worker using the new API · c4ca2b0b
    Petr Mladek authored
    Use the new API to create and destroy the crypto engine kthread
    worker. The API hides some implementation details.
    In particular, kthread_create_worker() allocates and initializes
    struct kthread_worker. It runs the kthread the right way
    and stores task_struct into the worker structure.
    kthread_destroy_worker() flushes all pending works, stops
    the kthread and frees the structure.
    This patch does not change the existing behavior except for
    dynamically allocating struct kthread_worker and storing
    only the pointer of this structure.
    It is compile tested only because I did not find an easy
    way how to run the code. Well, it should be pretty safe
    given the nature of the change.
