Hi Joel,

thanks for the patch but I don't think it makes sense to apply it. 

I think distributing NetworkManager linked with OpenSSL would be a
violation of NetworkManager's license (since the OpenSSL license adds
an extra restriction, something that is not allowed by General Public

Maybe, LibreSSL could be used instead.


Please refer to the following link for more details and discussion on
the topic:

We do already have two crypto backends whose license doesn't clash
with our licensing, I suggest you just use those if possible.

Sorry for that.
