There is no support for OpenSSL async operations in nginx.  There 
were some patches developed by Intel as part of the QAT work, 
though these were never submitted for inclusion into nginx (and 
probably not ready for it).  To use nginx with OpenSSL async 
operations you'll need these patches or an equivalent.
