      Description

      The following HotSpot flags need to be documented:

      product(bool, UseAES, false, \
               "Control whether AES instructions can be used on x86/x64")

       product(bool, UseAESIntrinsics, false, \
               "Use intrinsics for AES versions of crypto")

      The following text or something similar to:

      The UseAES and UseAESIntrinsics flags should be used to enable the hardware based AES intrinsics for Intel hardware. The hardware needs to be 2010 or newer Westmere hardware.
