UltraSPARC T2plus (VF) crypto

Just been playing with crypto on a 2-way UltraSPARC T2plus (Victoria Falls) system. The system, with 16-cores running at 1.2GHz was running Nevada 89, and my crypto microbenchmarks scaled very nicely. Able to hit HW peak performance (~6.8GB/s/system with AES-128-CBC), with suitable object sizes and a bunch of threads. More details as time allows.
