Branches: tmp-ephemeral-api to master
Author:    Daiki Ueno

Background: we are currently implementing ESNI and QUIC support API in GnuTLS. The problem is that those protocols are not finalized yet and we cannot know if those API functions will be necessary in the final versions of the protocols, while we need to assure ABI stability to some degree.

This adds a header trick to expose private variable through a new private function `_gnutls_ephemeral_get`, which returns an internal function symbol.
