I wasn't able to test openssl with hifn(4) acceleration:
hifn(4) seems defunct: loading hifn kernel module,
which seems to work (no error shown),
doesn't bring more capabilities to cryptodev
(openssl engine cryptodev -c), also cryptotest fails.
cryptotest is in /usr/src/tools/tools/crypto;
failure is shown with -v flag (& no perf. output).

Test done in master, after your commit to enable cryptodev in openssl.

HW seems OK: above works as expected in fbsd;
also 'openssl enc' *do* encrypt with cipher supported by hifn(4).

Hope you have idea how to fix this issue with hifn(4)/crypto(9).

I first tried to test on 128MB host (soekris4801),
but loading hifn module fails with contigmalloc error.
