IMO the design discussion of a user space API in:
"Userspace API proposal"
And the consequent attempt at a patch for OpenSSL in:
"OpenSSL patch to support Linux CryptoAPI"
Was a first nice draft of a desirable userspace API for various crypto/hash
Has there been some/any progress on the userspace API since, or
is this up for grabs?

As far as I know the most recent advance is:
"Add CryptoAPI User Interface Support v8"
I recommend you to read the whole thread, since in the end it appears
that new versions may move to a socket-oriented interface.
Finally, for OpenSSL, we are working on a pkcs11 engine so that there
will be no need to apply patches (and further we expect it could be used
with other apps too, like firefox). We hope to submit it soon.
