That GPLv3 draft two requires it be possible that code be modified and
still perform in its primary function does not require that the crypto
module itself which is used in conjunction with GPLv3 code be modifiable.
I am uncertain if that makes the code usable in a FIPS 140-2 context, but
your comment seems overbroad.
Separately it seems to me an open question whether making it possible to
run code on such a platform after modification, but with a flag that
indicates that it is not original code, would satisfy the GPLv2
provisions as writtten. It is also an interesting question whether it is
desirable that it be possible for same to satisfy these conditions.
