Hi ,
                We are porting our Application from  openssl 1.0.1 to openssl 3.0. In related to this activity we require to access the variable 'num' of structure bio_st.
In older versions the variable was accessed to set and get value using pointer operator (bi->num ).
Since this is not allowed in 3.0 we are looking for the Get/Set utilities similar to other member (BIO_set_flags/ BIO_get_flags)

Is this not supported in 3.0 ? If yes, Please guide the proper alternatives.
