Thats what i am hoping - and theory points to it. Numbers, numbers
There's an OpenBSD paper which demonstrates the usefulness of crypto
hardware for reducing cpu contention. I can't get to their web site now,
but it's there somewhere under a security link.
Asynchronous crypto layer was written under impression of those paper.
OpenBSD layer is very good, but it has some nitpics some of which are really
not good, but I hope all of them are resolved in my driver.
You can find paper for example there: http://www.madchat.org/crypto/ocf.pdf
