File systems can encrypt some of their data blocks with their own
encryption keys, and for those blocks another round of encryption at
the dm-crypt layer may be redundant, depending on the keys being used.

This patch enables dm-crypt to observe the REQ_NOENCRYPT flag as an
indicator that a bio request should bypass the dm-crypt encryption
queue.

By default dm-crypt will ignore this request flag from the file
system.  The user must set the allow_encrypt_override option to enable
this functionality.  Once the dm-crypt has been used with the
allow_encrypt_override option for any given block device, it must
continue to be used with the option to avoid the possibility of data
corruption.
