Ensure Workhorse is built with FIPS

Stan Hu requested to merge sh-enable-fips-workhorse into master

What does this MR do?

Previously Workhorse was not compiled properly for FIPS since the fips build tag was not defined, so LabKit's fips.Enabled() would erroneously return false. The FIPS_MODE=1 environment variable makes Workhorse activate the right build settings.

This came out an investigation of Maven package handling in gitlab-org/gitlab#380559 (closed).


See Definition of done.
