The time invariant AES-NI implementation is SIMD based, and so it needs
a fallback in case the code is called from a context where SIMD is not
allowed. On x86, this is really only when executing in the context of an
interrupt taken while in kernel mode, since SIMD is allowed in all other

There is very little code in the kernel that actually performs AES in
interrupt context, and the code that does (mac80211) only does so when
running on 802.11 devices that have no support for AES in hardware, and
those are rare these days.

So switch to the new AES core code as a fallback. It is much smaller, as
well as more resistant to cache timing attacks, and removing the
dependency allows us to disable the time variant drivers altogether if
