What is the difference in libfips.a and
Selftest.c and fipsprov.c is extra in library compilation.  Does it
mean that it just add provider entry function and self test, which is
required for fips certification.?

Once openssl3.0 is fips certified,  can we use libfips.a directly ?

My requirement is to use fips certified algorithm but environment may not
have capability to load dynamic library, so just thinking how openssl3.0
should be used?
