Commit 036fb360 adds a self-test that executes outside of FIPS context. This messes with the FIPS FSM if executed just after a crypto operation which depends on the FIPS FSM. So a new context was added so the self tests can execute safely. In case one of the self tests fail, then the whole lib is moved to an error state, so FIPS FSM doesn't matter anymore.
