Yeah, maybe we should. It's likely a much bigger allocation, but I
don't actually know if that affects speed.

In most cases where you want high performance we never hit this anyway
since we'll have hardware crypto. I know for our (Intel's) devices we
normally never hit these code paths.

But on the other hand, you also did your changes for a reason, and the
only reason I can see of that is performance. So you'd be the one with
most "skin in the game", I guess?
