The function dtls_send_server_key_exchange_ecdh() prepares and then
sends the DTLS ServerKeyExchange message containing the ECDSA
signature. RFC 4492 states that "[a]s per ANSI X9.62, an ECDSA signature
consists of a pair of integers, r and s.". These are generated by
dtls_ecdsa_create_sig() as point_r and point_s.
