crypto: qat - use pre-allocated buffers in datapath

In order to do DMAs, the QAT device requires that the scatterlist
structures are mapped and translated into a format that the firmware can
understand. This is defined as the composition of a scatter gather list
(SGL) descriptor header, the struct qat_alg_buf_list, plus a variable
number of flat buffer descriptors, the struct qat_alg_buf.

The allocation and mapping of these data structures is done each time a
request is received from the skcipher and aead APIs.
In an OOM situation, this behaviour might lead to a dead-lock if an
allocation fails.

Based on the conversation in [1], increase the size of the aead and
skcipher request contexts to include an SGL descriptor that can handle
a maximum of 4 flat buffers.
If requests exceed 4 entries buffers, memory is allocated dynamically.
