Anyone using nginx with cavium SSL ?

Compiled as
./configure --with-http_ssl_module
--with-openssl-opt="no-threads no-asm cav_crypto_offload

Works but speed drop makes it unusable

simple curl test on a static file gives ~ 3.5 MB/sec with cavium driver
loaded vs 70MB/s without cavium.

Any hints appreciated . Thank you.
