I toyed over the weekend with resurrecting CHIL: intermediate result here https://github.com/sctemme/openssl/tree/rescue-chil and I AM NOT PROUD OF THIS but have no cycles to clean it up for at least a couple of days to come. It builds now but doesn't work: my privkey loading routine doesn't get called and that may be an API change I missed. 

Can we resurrect CHIL for 1.1 along these lines? Then I'd be delighted to join the discussion about p11 for down the road.
