Only up-to block size? This would limit the buffer to 64-128 bytes.

I was hoping I could cache data upto 1024 bytes at least in the context, 
as this would allow running certain openssl cases with hw accelerated 
crypto. Openssl speed test via cryptodev appears to do sha_init - 
sha_update - sha_final chain with any size data.
