nss: Fall back to latest supported SSL version

NSS may be built without support for the latest SSL/TLS versions,
leading to "SSL version range is not valid" errors when the library
code supports a recent version (e.g. TLS v1.3) but it has explicitly
been disabled.

This change adjusts the maximum SSL version requested by libcurl to
be the maximum supported version at runtime, as long as that version
is at least as high as the minimum version required by libcurl.

Fixes #3261
