crypto: Work around deallocated stack frame reference gcc bug on sparc.
On sparc, if we have an alloca() like situation, as is the case with SHASH_DESC_ON_STACK(), we can end up referencing deallocated stack memory. The result can be that the value is clobbered if a trap or interrupt arrives at just the right instruction. It only occurs if the function ends returning a value from that alloca() area and that value can be placed into the return value register using a single instruction. For example, in lib/libcrc32c.c:crc32c() we end up with a return sequence like: return %i7+8 lduw [%o5+16], %o0 ! MEM[(u32 *)__shash_desc.1_10 + 16B], %o5 holds the base of the on-stack area allocated for the shash descriptor. But the return released the stack frame and the register window. So if an intererupt arrives between 'return' and 'lduw', then the value read at %o5+16 can be corrupted. Add a data compiler barrier to work around this problem. This is exactly what the gcc fix will end up ...
