Zhang, Roy Fan Jan. 10, 2019, 2:50 p.m.
This patch updates the rte_cryptodev_sym_session structure for
cryptodev library. The updates include a changed session private
data array and an added nb_drivers field. They are used to
calculate the correct session header size and ensure safe access
of the session private data.
