As a public service, since I already got several private mails,
I will state the current situation:

AESNI merge depends on the merge of r208833 and a lot of followups to
r208833. The merge of r208833 needs r208453, that was committed to stable/8
only recently, since it required an approval from re at .

This delay together with lack of the time recently on my side makes me
skeptical about chances to have aesni(4) in 8.2.

Please note that aesni(4) is not needed to use AESNI in usermode.
