OK, I'll just remove that notice, it was mostly for debugging. Besides,
the aesni engine (in 1.0.0) do speed up things quite a bit even without
AES-NI instructions, possibly by enabling use of better code.

BTW when converting to EVP I just implemented the thread-locking
callbacks that Dhiru first used in the ssh format. In RAR I haven't seen
any regression like you were discussing then.
