With this change it is possible to enable cryptodev by default for
openssl(1) with lines like below in etc/ssl/openssl.cnf.
Unfortunately openssh does not call the functions to read the config
file so it's not possible to enable cryptodev in openssh in a similar
fashion. I have yet figure out how to do support cryptodev by default

Oh, and I just remembered that I forgot to thank Mike Tancsa / Sentex
for providing hardware used for testing this.  So... thanks! :-)

engines = engine_section

cryptodev = cryptodev_section

[ cryptodev_section ]
engine_id = cryptodev
default_algorithms = ALL

(Note that the above was copied from a config file I haven't touched
in month so I'm 100% the exact section above is enough, but it's
