Cryptodev fails because it checks that the requested crypto driver provides hardware crypto. function "checkforsoftware" in cryptodev.c And it does not take care about the sysctl kern.cryptodevallowsoft. Looks like a bug and not a feature. OpenBSD's cryptodev seems to take care about the sysctl and i think you can use the cryptosoft driver with it.
