EVP_PKEY_CTX_new_id() may return NULL and for this reason we must check
its return value and bail out in case of failure.

Failing to do so, may result in NULL pointer dereferece when we
pass the returned pointer (NULL) to other functions.

According to OpenSSL documentation, this can indeed return NULL, 
so catch it... (Note: as for 1/3, this code is only in master, so
no need to backport to release/2.5)

Your patch has been applied to the master branch.
