The padlock(4) man page says that it supports hardware accelerated aes/RNG in 
VIA C3, C7 and Eden processors.

The new Nano processor series also includes Padlock, so this processor supported 
by FreeBSD's padlock driver although the man page does not mention it?

I am thinking of buying an M830/Nano platform to build a low power custom NAS 
with encrypted volumes and thus it is necessary to get hardware acceleration for 

Thank you for your answer beforehand.
