internal/chacha20: improve chacha20 performance on ppc64le This improves the performance of the asm implementation for chacha20 on ppc64le by updating to the vsx implementation provided in cryptogams. The previous implementation was found to not perform as well as possible on power9. This implementation improves performance on both power8 and power9. Power9 improvement with this change as compared to current: name old time/op new time/op delta ChaCha20/32-64 361ns ± 0% 225ns ± 0% -37.67% (p=1.000 n=1+1) ChaCha20/63-64 364ns ± 0% 229ns ± 0% -37.09% (p=1.000 n=1+1) ChaCha20/64-64 364ns ± 0% 231ns ± 0% -36.54% (p=1.000 n=1+1) ChaCha20/256-64 332ns ± 0% 199ns ± 0% -40.06% (p=1.000 n=1+1) ChaCha20/1024-64 1.24µs ± 0% 0.70µs ± 0% -43.23% (p=1.000 n=1+1) ChaCha20/1350-64 1.89µs ± 0% 1.03µs ± 0% -45.35% (p=1.000 n=1+1) ChaCha20/65536-64 77.0µs ± 0% 42.5µs ± 0% -44.83% (p=1.000 n=1+1) This is discussed in issue golang/go#25051. A few asm instructions vmrgew and vmrgow were just added in Go 1.14 so have been encoded using WORD at this point.
