swcrypto could use a variety of enhanacements

Milestones/deliverables:

* use multiple cores efficiently (that already works reasonably well for multiple request streams)
* use faster versions of complex transforms (CBC, counter modes) from our in-tree OpenSSL or elsewhere (eg libtomcrypt)
* add support for asymmetric operations (public key)

Extra credit:

* Tie public-key operations into veriexec somehow for extra credit (probably a very good start towards an undergrad thesis project).
