to process more than one block at a time. This is not a
change to the documented behavior, but unfortunately breaks
assumptions accidentally made in gnutls, up to and including
assumptions accidentally made in GnuTLS, up to and including

* New x86_64 implementation of sha1 and sha256, for processors
supporting the sha_ni instructions. Speedup of 3-5 times on
affected processors.
* Improved parameters for the precomputation of tables used
for ecc signatures. Roughly 10%-15% speedup of the ecdsa
sign operation using the secp_256r1, secp_384r1 and
secp_521r1 curves, and 25% speedup of ed25519 sign
operation, benchmarked on x86_64. Table sizes unchanged,
around 16 KB per curve.
