Intel QAT on a device with Intel Corporation DH89XXCC Series QAT (rev 21)

Hi, I’m testing VyOS rolling release on a “liberated” Cisco Meraki MX100, which is a custom Intel-based system

and in the lspci I see that this thing has Intel QAT

And here it is
01:00.0 Co-processor: Intel Corporation DH89XXCC Series QAT (rev 21)

But it does not seem to be recognized by vyos

vyos@vyos:~$ show system acceleration qat 
         No QAT device found

From some googling I see that there is a package in the legacy repository that is about this chipset
as it says in the readme
Intel® Communications Chipset 89xx Series Software for Linux

So am I too late to try to use this lol? Or is there a way to get QAT recognized on this device?

Hello @bobafetthotmail , did you try VyOS 1.3 version. I know that in 1.4 exist some issues with QAT related to kernel version.
