Adding more people for review.

@thomas@monjalon.net: Can this patch be taken in next-crypto as the patch is 
primarily for ipsec-secgw?

Yes that's fine.

Thanks for the effort.
As I can see this function: port_groupx4() is nearly identical for all 3 
platforms: sse/nenon/altivec (except of course built-in arch-specific 
instincts).
In fact, even comemnts are identical.
I wonder can we have something like:
examples/common/<arch>/port_group.h
and for each arch will have defined port_groupx4(...)
?

Yes, It’s a good point. I was thinking to have arch in file name itself. But we can have arch specific directory and have different header files.
Do you want me to make changes for all 3 sse/neon/altivec or just neon ?
I can check compilation for all but functionality/perf validate for Neon only.
