Anderson Sasaki created a merge request: https://gitlab.com/gnutls/gnutls/-/merge_requests/1216

Project:Branches: ansasaki/gnutls:postpone_config_loading to gnutls/gnutls:master
Author:    Anderson Sasaki

Add a description of the new feature/bug fix. Reference any relevant bugs.

Load the configuration file after FIPS-140 power-on self-tests is finished.  This prevents failures during the self-tests due to algorithms disabled by the configuration file.  As a result, any algorithm can be tested during FIPS-140 POST regardless of the configuration file.

Thanks to @dueno for the suggestion.

Fixes #956
