Applies the TLS Pseudo-Random-Function (PRF) on the master secret

The label variable usually contains a string denoting the
purpose for the generated data. The server_random_first
indicates whether the client random field or the server random
field should be first in the seed. Non-zero indicates that the
server random field is first, 0 that the client random field is
The extra variable can be used to add more data to the seed,
after the random variables. It can be used to make sure the
generated output is strongly connected to some additional data
(e.g., a string used in user authentication).
The output is placed in out , which must be pre-allocated.
This function produces identical output with gnutls_prf_rfc5705()
when server_random_first is set to 0 and extra is NULL. Under
TLS1.3 this function will only operate when these conditions are
true, or otherwise return GNUTLS_E_INVALID_REQUEST.
