The context of the problem may not have been clearly stated in the previous
description.

This is a problem found in one of our real user scenarios:
In this scenario of using an accelerator to perform encryption services,
it was originally intended to use the CPU to perform encryption services
in synchronous mode (without loading the hardware device driver, and without
registering the asynchronous callback function), but due to a deployment
error, the Hisi hardware device driver was loaded into the system,
this wrong operation causes the encryption service to call the device
driver of the hisi hardware, but the hardware device driver executes the
asynchronous mode, so the callback interface is called after the service
is completed.
This leads to this system calltrace problem.

The purpose of this patch is to ensure that the device does not appear
calltrace in this abnormal situation.
