[PATCH v2 02/14] crypto: omap-aes: Add useful debug macros

When DEBUG is enabled, these macros can be used to print variables in integer
and hex format, and clearly display which registers, offsets and values are
being read/written , including printing the names of the offsets and their values.

This patch results in a checkpatch error that cannot be fixed.
ERROR: Macros with multiple statements should be enclosed in a do - while loop
+#define omap_aes_read(dd, offset)                                      \
+       __raw_readl(dd->io_base + offset);                              \
+       pr_debug("omap_aes_read(" #offset ")\n");

Using do-while loop will break a lot of code such as:
ret = omap_aes_read(..);

On the other hand, not using a do-while loop will only result in a spurious
debug print message when DEBUG is enabled, all other issues would be caught at
compile time if any. As such, there is no code in the driver as of now that
requires a do-while loop, but there is code that will break if a do-while loop
is used in the macro so we ignore the checkpatch error in this case.
