For single-core designs (as opposed to parallel AES engine
architectures), the performance of SHA-1 is very close to 
that of AES-XCBC-MAC.  Typically SHA-1 is a bit slower for smaller
packet sizes and faster for medium to large packet sizes.  Of
course, different vendor implementations may have somewhat 
different results.
