== Correction in the subject line ===

We would like to contribute the SHA256 AVX2 intrinsic.

This intrinsic is for x86 AVX2 architecture when no supports_sha() is available. It is L64 code only.

The patch delivers x2 performance gain for the latency and throughput - both are measured on an average message.
