I managed to build LibreSSL (the latest stable version) for MIC, and linked it with john-jumbo in place of OpenSSL. Surprisingly, the issue was gone.

Maybe we could use LibreSSL instead of OpenSSL when building for MIC? Either way, the SSL library need to be built manually. Sure, let's use LibreSSL for MIC. Please update the instructions accordingly. However, let's also figure out the issue with OpenSSL. If it's a real bug, it needs to be reported to OpenSSL developers. Can you play with it some more, especially now that you can e.g. compare pieces of compiled code vs. LibreSSL's (disassemble relevant object files)? Alexander
