Hmm that might be a pre-NSS thing? I guess we store a pointer to the
real skeyseed inside NSS in st->st_skeyseed_nss and use that whenever we
need more keying material for this SA ? Or do we initialize the PRF with
skeyseed and then just call the PRF/PRFPLUS and thus never need to
skeyseed ever again?
