With the recent-ish announcement of 3.0's release being delayed,
I'm curious if OpenSSL would consider accepting patches to backport
KTLS to 1.1.1 or if that is too large a feature to consider
backporting?  (I'm not really familiar with OpenSSL's norms in
terms of what gets merged.)  I will probably end up doing the work
no matter what and if "it depends" is the answer then I can come
up with a candidate patch series.
