To make them pass under FIPS, as `%FORCE_SESSION_HASH` is the default, we need to think about the library behavior for the following cases:
- the negotiated version is either SSL 3.0 or DTLS 0.9 (i.e., EMS cannot be used)
- either `%NO_EXTENSIONS` or `%NO_SESSION_HASH` is used

For the former, I guess we could simply allow absence of EMS for those protocols; we could disable them in configuration file.

For the latter, we probably should have a way to invalidate the effect of implicit `%FORCE_SESSION_HASH`, while we want to ensure that the use of EMS is somehow enforced.
