OpenBSD's OCF still provides the hardware abstraction layer for interfacing with
said specific devices, namely the HiFn line for Soekris' application.

There has been mention by the OBSD team as well as other folks of a /dev/crypto
implementation for Linux, which I assume would include dovetail with support for
the 2.5's kernel IPSEC and FreeSWAN/+ crypto implementations.  Anybody know if
that has happened yet?
