I have been experimenting with an alternate approach, where I have a small
buffer within the context, this would be more like the way other drivers do
this. If the buffer is closed before running out of space, I can push this
to be processed by HW, otherwise I must fallback to SW. Does this sound like
a better approach?

You can buffer up to a block obviously.  Anything beyond that
should just use a fallback.

Only up-to block size? This would limit the buffer to 64-128 bytes.

I was hoping I could cache data upto 1024 bytes at least in the context, as this would allow running certain openssl cases with hw accelerated crypto. Openssl speed test via cryptodev appears to do sha_init - sha_update - sha_final chain with any size data.
