FIPS140-3 IG 10.3.E Periodic Self-Testing says:

  At security levels 1 and 2, acceptable means for initiating the
  periodic self-tests include a provided service, resetting, rebooting
  or power cycling.

Neither resetting, rebooting, nor power-cycling is suitable because
those involve operations outside of the module.  Therefore this patch
adds a new API to manually run the substance of FIPS140 self-tests.

Fixes: #1364
