    Clear state in DTLSv1_listen
    This is a backport of commit e83ee04bb7de800cdb71d522fa562e99328003a3 from
    the master branch (and this has also been applied to 1.0.2). In 1.0.2 this
    was CVE-2015-0207. For other branches there is no known security issue, but
    this is being backported as a precautionary measure.
    The DTLSv1_listen function is intended to be stateless and processes

    loop over the call to DTLSv1_listen until a valid ClientHello is received
    with an associated cookie. A defect in the implementation of DTLSv1_listen
    means that state is preserved in the SSL object from one invokation to the
