Summary

Hardware TLS is now supported in some interface cards and it works well. Except that
when we have connections that retransmit a lot we get into trouble with all the retransmits.
This prep step makes way for change that Drew will be making so that we can "kick out" a
session from hardware TLS.

Test Plan

Validate that hw tls is working and the accounting continues to work as expected.
