these bugs induced by openssl 3 are so exhausting

@ariadne i love having an application crash because checks notes the CPU supports vector instructions

@lotte @kescher not exhaustively, but hey, they are bullying distros into taking it by revoking maintenance of openssl 1.1 :)

@lanodan they are, but apparently they think they can just do this shit now that they're the de-facto standard crypto library, especially for TLS @lotte @ariadne

@kescher @lanodan @lotte @ariadne rustls is a thing... of course I know projects can't just switch to it easily, but there are alternatives to OpenSSL

@lanodan @kescher @lotte @ariadne TIL ring's build.rs compiles some C forked from BoringSSL

@lanodan @kescher @be @lotte

it should be noted that the OpenSSL 3 relicense is legally dubious
