Earlier crypto accelerators I've used were _sometimes_
directly useable from openssl, given that the right so
called "engine" was initialized.
See http://www.openssl.org/docs/crypto/engine.html


So to get crypto acceleration, the following must be
done.

1. make sure the accelerator is supported in openssl
    libs through --engine. If not, all bets are almost
    off.

2. Add engine support to otp/lib/ssl/c_src/esock_openssl.c
    and the ssl:start().
