topic: The RSA_SSLV23_PADDING and related functions should be
completely removed from OpenSSL 3.0 code.

comment: The padding mode and the related functions (which are already
deprecated in the current master branch) is useless outside of SSLv2
support. We do not support SSLv2 and we do not expect anybody using
OpenSSL 3.0 to try to support SSLv2 by calling those functions.

Proposed by Tomas Mraz.
