Stephan Mueller commented:

Just a note on the basic requirement: for asym cipher operations where there the FIPS specifications only define non-deterministic operations (DSA, ECDSA, PSS) the self tests must also use those non-deterministic operations. For deterministic operations (PKCS 1.5), a deterministic self test is to be used.

The use of the deterministic cipher mode for DSA, ECDSA for FIPS self-testing is not yet approved. You may leave it in the code, but you need to provide the non-deterministic self tests for each cipher.
