Note that if you don't want kernel_lock taken for the device access you can
set d_flags in crypto_cdevsw to 'D_OTHER | D_MPSAFE', although you need at
least 4.99.48 for that to work. You can also do the same for the kernel
thread and soft interrupt (SOFTINT_MPSAFE, KTHREAD_MPSAFE).

It also looks like since 4.99.48 the fileops are already called without
kernel_lock - oops!
