 One nit and one concern/question. The nit:
 if(mSSLStatus != nullptr) {
 please add a whitespace after `if`.

 So, the current code seems to keep the `mSSLStatus` as-is in case `if
 (sp)` is `false`. I wonder if that is intentional and a use-case we should
 keep in mind (your patch is essentially getting rid of that possibility).
 Is there a way we can reach that scenario? It seems to me the answer is
 "Yes", just by looking at the way the code is written. However, I am not
 sure which transition from load A to load B would match this in reality.
 It worries me that we are missing something here, so it might be worth
