Forgive my ignorance... Are OPENSSL_ia32cap, OPENSSL_armcap and
friends intended to be public?

Setting the values when using openssl.exe are discuss in the man
pages, so that kind of speaks to public. However, the symbols for
OPENSSL_ia32cap_P[] are available in the static library but missing
from the shared object, so I'm not sure what's supposed to be

Inspecting values from OPENSSL_ia32cap_P[] and friends comes up
frequently, like "how do I know if AES-NI" is available.
