you are correct; my apologies.

by the time tor_tls_init invokes crypto_global_init it should have
been initialized correctly based on the config option as you describe.

Where does this happen?
I just see the code as I describe in the quote above.

are you not seeing the hardware accel log entries at all?  or is this
a question about the (potentially misleading) call from tor_tls_init?

None. Just the log entry as if no hw accel is used.

btw, if you want to force OpenSSL hardware acceleration without
requiring application intervention see:

I am using that patch (and others) to be sure that openssl uses the via padlock hardware:

# openssl engine
(padlock) VIA PadLock (no-RNG, ACE)
(dynamic) Dynamic engine loading support

That is OK?

Kind regards,
