better performance and support for HW acceleration
- ssh: performance improvements, uses the new gen_statem behavior
- ssl: enhanced error log messages
- dialyzer: the support for maps is very much extended both the
type specification syntax and the type analysis.

specifications on send/receive, support for lttng, ...)
