VIA Padlock & OpenSolaris Crypto Framework

An inital prototype of a driver for the VIA Padlock has just been pushed into the OpenSolaris crypto framework.  At this time it only supports SHA-1 and SHA-256.  The plan is to get support for AES, RSA and random number.  Ultimately this driver should appear in the main ON consolidation of OpenSolaris and be available on all distributions including future Sun releases of Solaris.

Many thanks to Derek Morr for sharing his work on this via OpenSolaris.

FYI, I got docs for the padlock core from VIA. I plan on adding support for the RNG provider as soon as I have a few moments. :-)

I left a spot in the code just for you, Garret. padlock_rng.c :)
