It will take a couple of years before this trickles into the relevant
distros. I think we need to drop GnuTLS then and look for something
else. OpenSSL seems impossible because I don't think we can change our
license. Another one that advertises HW support is libgcrypt then. Or
for this special use case we might grow something on our own? This can't
be rocket science.
