Support of TLS processing in kernel

  Recently some work is done by people at facebook about TLS processing in
It is called as kernel TLS by them. A kernel patch for the same is
submitted on
linux kernel. I am trying to see something similar can be done for FreeBSD
too. I see
that stream parsing(strparsing module) support which is leveraged by this
kernel TLS
module is present in linux kernel and not in FreeBSD. This stream parsing
helps the kernel to custom parse the TCP data according to a application
layer protocol
requirement. Is there a way that helps to achieve the same in FreeBSD?
