[PATCH v2 3/4] crypto: skcipher - Remove VLA usage for SKCIPHER_REQUEST_ON_STACK

In the quest to remove all stack VLA usage from the kernel[1], this caps
the non-ASYNC skcipher request size similar to other limits and adds a
sanity check at usage. After a review of all non-ASYNC algorithm callers
of crypto_skcipher_set_reqsize(), the largest appears to be 384:

4       struct sun4i_cipher_req_ctx
96      struct crypto_rfc3686_req_ctx
375     cts:
                160     crypto_skcipher_blocksize(cipher) (max)
                152     struct crypto_cts_reqctx
                63      align_mask (max)
384     struct rctx (lrw, xts)
