I didn't mean to imply that there's no new aesni mode, but if you take a
look into the sources you will see no *engine* for aesni.  An engine is
an external shared object which is implemented in the engines subdir in
the source tree.  There is no such code nor anything in the engines/Makefile
pointing to a new aesni engine.  Aesni-related code is only in the
crypto/evp subdir, so I assume it's implemented as part of the base libs.
