Well the handling remains in ssl_init_ctx_protocol but now an SSL_CONF_CTX with
appropriate flags is created in moddssl_ctx_init. That is done because a valid
SSL_CONF_CTX is needed to call SSL_CONF_cmd_value_type in

So my thought was (if unnecessary SSL_CONF_CTX creation is a problem) change the
modssl_ctx_init to just set mctx->ssl_ctx_config to NULL and instead create a
new SSL_CONF_CTX in ssl_cmd_SSLOpenSSLConfCmd if mctx->ssl_ctx_config is NULL.
