We have a patch sent to upstream mailing list to enlarge SEC driver
capability from 2 to 256 so that cpu stress-ng test passed. This
patch has been tested and hit no issue with cpu stress test.

This patch has not yet hit mainline kernel but has been ACK from
maintainer. Though it does not have stable hash number but this patch
is really simple, only 2 define number changed.

On focal kernel, hisi_sec2 has been disable temporarily so that
cpu stress test will use no accelerator and pass. First patch is
to revert that so that on d06 system we will have accelerator and
for focal kernel only.

Second patch is to enlarge the capability for SEC driver and
expect to hit mainline kernel in 5.9 merge window. I am happy to
send this patchset again when stable hash available if it makes
ubuntu delta much easy to maintain.
