Tweak the SHA256 update routines to invoke the SHA256 block transform
block by block, to avoid excessive scheduling delays caused by the
NEON algorithm running with preemption disabled.

Also, remove a stale comment which no longer applies now that kernel
mode NEON is actually disallowed in some contexts.
