Did you re-run the tests multiple times with each version to see that the
timings were stable?

I can't find any noticable differences between 7.19.5 and 7.20.1 for
curl_global_init() (lib/easy.c for example hasn't been changed since
7.19.5...). I suspect the entire difference you see is due to OpenSSL taking
various amounts of time to get enough random data for the PRNG.
