I don't follow how session ids could be "essentially arbitrary"
(except a library bug that justifies such safety belt).
For TLSv1.3, this callback is used to update session cache as part
of constructing NewSessionTicket. It's called after generating
dummy session ids, which, and regardless of protocol version, are
capped to SSL3_SSL_SESSION_ID_LENGTH (32).

The check can be moved above the cpu expensive i2d_SSL_SESSION call.
Or rather move i2d_SSL_SESSION closer to corresponding ngx_memcpy().
(but see my reply on the next patch)
