Hi Tobias,

I am sending patches for a new configuration to HW offload.

Up until now there were 2 modes:
1. no:   Configure the SA without HW offload
2. yes: Configure the SA with HW offload.
              In this case, if the device does not support offloading, SA creation will fail.

With these patches we are adding a new option:
3. auto: If the device and kernel support HW offload,
               configure the SA with HW offload, but do not fail
               SA creation otherwise.

We would appreciate your comments.
