We made a NetBSD port of the ubsec driver of OpenBSD. We use Broadcom
header files from Linux to make it accessible from OpenSSL engine
instead of OpenBSD /dev/crypto interface.

For now, only 3DES_CBC is implemented.

Theo de Raadt (the original author of the driver) told us it was an
unfortunate choice because we could have a generic /dev/crypto

What should we do? Are you interested in this driver (there are maybe
some copyright problems due to header files)?
