This is very interesting, thanks. Following this hint, in the same vein the
FIPS code also has:
Although this one looks more like an entropy callback than
anythong that could be used to know about status.
The FIPS User Guide mentions both, although the information on
FIPS_post_set_callback() is not much at all. Is there another
source than the User Guide 2.0, for detailed descriptions of
these FIPS-related methods ? For isnatnce, the 'op' variable of
FIPS_post_set_callback() is not described at all. Any manual or
info pages ? Could be other potentially interesting methods in there.
