topic: We allow calling a free function on an algorithm method for
methods that
       were not fetched. The free function does nothing in that case.
       EVP_MD_CTX_md will be deprecated and documented as having "get0"
       semantics. We will replace it with EVP_MD_CTX_get0_md and
       EVP_MD_CTX_get1_md. We should do the same for other similar functions
