I did some investigation and unfortunately there is no AES-NI crypto api 
support in 2.6.18 nor the RedHat patched versions. RHEL6 kernel basing on 
2.6.32 does have aesni_intel and formal support.

As they rewrote big parts of the crypto API around that time I think 
backporting into the source tree could be a tedious work.
