    The problem is not with cryptography libraries alone. OpenSSL did nothing wrong by trying to get the best possible performance

    I might argue that point. They optimized for a particular benchmark. Is maximum single core throughout the optimal target? Or should developers consider that such code, in performance sensitive situations, is likely to be a 40 core server? My laptop, which is never cpu crypto bound, apparently benefits less from these optimizations than their server is pessimized.
