In added this long time ago to kernel 3.4 ... which is not supported anymore by the author. We should try this with kernel 4.x ... i haven't done the tests - I read somewhere that we don't gain much. Can't remember where :(

The patches have been accepted into mainline for 4.3. See the Status section of http://sunxi.montjoie.ovh/

 

Although I haven't done any benchmarking myself, I would be surprised if the patches didn't add a boost to security functions. I believe you have to patch openSSL to use the changes or you won't notice much of a boost.

Right, OpenSSL needs to be able to use hardware cryptographic accelerator, it seems either via AF_ALG or cryptodev. A80/A83 or H3 SoC can be interesting since they support RSA
