As I already wrote:

- There is no problem unless you are trying to ask nginx to 
  compile OpenSSL for you.  That is, all discussed cases are 

- The problem is clearly on the OpenSSL side.

- An obvious workaround for all versions of OpenSSL is to compile 
  OpenSSL yourself; workaround for recent versions of OpenSSL is 
  to define KERNEL_BITS.

- Suggested change breaks at least some builds (and/or requires 
  additional checks to avoid breaking them), and doesn't look 
  future-proof at all.
