Replace Intel out-of-tree drivers with Linux Kernel stock drivers.
Closed, ResolvedPublicFEATURE REQUEST


@Dmitry performed tests using the Xena Vulcan box to compare the performance of the in-tree vs. out-of-tree drivers.

There is no real difference so we will drop the out-of-tree drivers in favor of less trouble on any upgrade of the OS kernel. Also this flattens the path towards 5.10 Kernel on a final equuleus release once we get QAT working again.
