Hi Gernot,

You've got it about right.  IIRC at one point there was kernel assist
for SEC hardware acceleration for just the "mcf547x_8x" (using the SEC

The older openssl-0.9.7g.spec is still referenced by cobra5475 and
mcf547x_8x, so it can't be removed.

I also think having the config available is a good thing as the plumbing
is there if someone updates the .spec file to provide a general solution
for using hardware SEC.

Regards, Stuart
