HIFN 7951 and /dev/crypto...

I've compiled the kernel and seem to have /dev/crypto available:

hifn0 mem 0xf4100000-0xf4100fff,0xf4101000-0xf4101fff irq 7 at device 13.0 on pci0
hifn0: Hifn 7951, rev 0, 128KB sram, 193 sessions

114-sec# ls -l /dev/crypto
crw-rw-rw-  1 root  operator   70,   0 Mar  1 11:54 /dev/crypto

...but "openssl speed -evp sha1" return the same results as I got before adding 
the crypto card.  What do I need to do to make things like ssh and openssl use 
the crypto hardware?
