Ah, thanks. I actually tried something similar to that when I had my
mind on it by loading the legacy providers, but missed the padding
part. Nice find.

It seems to me that it would be a good idea to still check for the
return value of EVP_CIPHER_CTX_set_padding() and just return with
a PXE_CIPHER_INIT. By looking at the upstream code, it is true that
it always returns true for <= 1.1.1, but that's not the case for
3.0.0. Some code paths of upstream also check after it.
Also, what's the impact with disabling the padding for <= 1.1.1? This
part of the upstream code is still a bit obscure to me..

OSSL_PROVIDER_load() is new as of 3.0.0, so using a configure switch
similarly as what we do for the other functions should be more
consistent and enough, no?

Hmm. I am linking to a build of alpha6 here, but I still see the
error being reported as a bad decrypt for this test. Interesting.
