 openssl: initialise the digest context before calling EVP_DigestInit()

 When using the OpenSSL libraries in FIPS mode, the function call
 EVP_DigestInit() is actually #defined to FIPS_digestinit().
 Unfortunately wheres EVP_DigestInit() initialises the context and then
 calls EVP_DigestInit_ex(), this function assumes that the context has
 been pre-initialised and crashes when it isn't.

 Fixes #279
