qat_mem non root access

I building QAT1.6 driver and openssl-async. All working fine, but as root.

I have tried:

chmod g=rw /dev/icp_*

chgrp ${GROUP} /dev/icp_*

chmod g=rw /dev/qat_mem

chgrp ${GROUP} /dev/qat_mem

but getting the following error:

 

mmap: 11 Resource temporarily unavailable: Resource temporarily unavailable

crypto_alloc_from_slab error, create_slab failed - memory allocation error

 

How do i allow non-root access to qat_mem?

And what is the difference between qat_mem and qae_mem? Which driver is recommended to use? I did not find this in the documentation.

The qae_mem information that may help you can be found as a reference in section 3.2.7 specifically at the Resolution field, on page 26 of the http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/release-notes/quickassist-technology-sof...
