In the experimental, never-enabled JPAKE code: clear returned digest and
length in hash_buffer() for error cases; could lead to memory corruption
later if EVP_Digest* fails.  Pointed out by Mark Dowd

As I understand it this can be enabled via code edit/gcc command line
options, so not sure if this qualified for a CVE or not (vuln in code,
yes, is code reachable? not under any default setup, and even on
non-default you have to go pretty far off to enable it).
