EVP_MD_CTX_free documentation

It would be nice if the documentation would guarantee that
this function is a no-op when the parameter is NULL - like
the standard free() call.

This would save coding (if not NULL) all the time.

Same comment for all the _free functions.

I know I can look at the code, but that doesn't
provide an API guarantee.
