Associate the FIPS context to the current thread, diverting the currently active context. If a cryptographic operation is ongoing in the current thread, e.g., gnutls_aead_cipher_init() is called but gnutls_aead_cipher_deinit() is not yet called, it returns an error GNUTLS_E_INVALID_REQUEST.

The operation state of context will be reset to GNUTLS_FIPS140_OP_INITIAL.

This function is no-op if FIPS140 is not compiled in nor enabled at run-time.

0 upon success, a negative error code otherwise
