hifn on 2.1 breaks certain ciphers w/openssl
Need to gather some more details, but it appears having a hifn card in a 2.1 system completely breaks openssl. At least ACB doesn't function on 2.1 amd64 with a hifn card because of SSL failure that doesn't happen without the hifn. The Soekris VPN1411 specifically though it's probably not specific to that particular model. I have a couple of those here, will test when time permits to gather more info.

Probably not broken in general (or the GUI wouldn't work, nor would ssh) but it does have issues with some ciphers, as I found when adding the BEAST mitigation options.
If the server to which it connects had that set, I could see it failing.

Testing this on 2.2 I am still unable to set lighttpd to use BEAST protection. I receive the same error as before, indicating a problem with the encryption. ACB does work on the same 2.2 installation, however, something else may have changed server side since the last test.
