Theo has some patches to binutils in the OpenBSD tree for the VIA C3 AES
stuff. This post mentions the speedups he gets

Binutils patches (I had passed the message to Jakub/jgarzik) a while
back

He's also mentioned that he is involved in the development of the VIA
C5J Esther (which according to a message on openbsd-cvs list can do 800
RSA signs/sec at 1024 bits)
