Can you expand on that (I found that comment strange)? The possiblities
that come to mind are:

a) That was a typo for TLS_RSA_ (which isn't FS)
b) Actually both TLS_DHE_ and TLS_RSA_, since whatever considers
   supporting Chacha20 supports ECDHE already (or it just does pure-PSK),
   and that's superrior to both.
c) Something else.
