[openssl-users] Can OpenSSL applications/utilities use SunSPARC crypto accelerators?

I read the following description from Oracle Solaris website

OpenSSL T4 engine Availability 
The OpenSSL t4 engine is available with Solaris 11 and 11.1. For Solaris 10
08/11 (U10), you need to use the OpenSSL pkcs11 engine. The OpenSSL t4
engine is distributed only with the version of OpenSSL distributed with
Solaris (and not third-party or self-compiled versions of OpenSSL). 
The following announcement is from OpenSSL. 
Changes between 1.0.1l and 1.0.2 [22 Jan 2015] 
  *) Support for SPARC Architecture 2011 crypto extensions, first 
     implemented in SPARC T4. This covers AES, DES, Camellia, SHA1, 
     SHA256/512, MD5, GHASH and modular exponentiation. 
     [Andy Polyakov, David Miller] 

I am confused. I don't know which one is right. 

I thought the announcement from OpenSSL was right and the description in
Oracle website was obsolete. But my test results could not verify my idea.
