One reason, as suggested by Thor, is that OpenSSL sometimes needs to
wait on more complex events than just socket read or write. In
particular, some hardware appears to require the use of kevent to
signal completion of crypto operations. It seems fairly natural,
then, to express these wait predicates in terms of a struct kevent.
