So in this case is non open-source software relevant at all? I don't
think so. For open-source initiative licenses, public domain and CC
there's a patent exemption anyway (since 2013):
http://web.cs.ucdavis.edu/~rogaway/ocb/license1.pdf

Another one exists for non-military software implementations:
http://web.cs.ucdavis.edu/~rogaway/ocb/license2.pdf

And another one specific to OpenSSL:
