crypto: x86/aes - drop scalar assembler implementations
The AES assembler code for x86 isn't actually faster than code generated by the compiler from aes_generic.c, and considering the disproportionate maintenance burden of assembler code on x86, it is better just to drop it entirely. Modern x86 systems will use AES-NI anyway, and given that the modules being removed have a dependency on aes_generic already, we can remove them without running the risk of regressions.
