[Mono-dev] Adding AES-NI support

Hi all,

I'm looking at adding Intel AES-NI support to Mono. Most of the actual
code that does useful stuff is done by other people (on what looks
like a very liberal license), so I'm just gluing it all together. Does
the runtime currently have methods for determining the instruction
sets that the CPU supports? I'd imagine that you'd want to use the
accelerated implementation first if available, and if not, fall back
to the current default, which I think is RijndaelManaged.
