Avoid shifting negative numbers in curve25519. C is still kind of unsure about the whole two's complement thing and leaves left-shifting of negative numbers undefined. Sadly, some sanitizers believe in teaching the controversy and complain when code relies on the theory of two's complement. Shushing these sanitizers in this case is easier than fighting with build configuration, so replace the shifts with masks. (This is equivalent as the left-shift was of a value right-shifted by the same amount. Instead, we store the unshifted value in carry0, etc., and mask off the bottom bits.) A few other places get casts to unsigned types which, by some miracle, C compilers are forbidden from miscompiling. This is imported from upstream's b95779846dc876cf959ccf96c49d4c0a48ea3082 and 5b7af0dd6c9315ca76fba16813b66f5792c7fe6e.

BoringSSL is a fork of OpenSSL that is designed to meet Google's needs.
Although BoringSSL is an open source project, it is not intended for general use, as OpenSSL is. We don't recommend that third parties depend upon it. Doing so is likely to be frustrating because there are no guarantees of API or ABI stability.
Programs ship their own copies of BoringSSL when they use it and we update everything as needed when deciding to make API changes. This allows us to mostly avoid compromises in the name of compatibility. It works for us, but it may not work for you.
BoringSSL arose because Google used OpenSSL for many years in various ways and, over time, built up a large number of patches that were maintained while tracking upstream OpenSSL. As Google's product portfolio became more complex, more copies of OpenSSL sprung up and the effort involved in maintaining all these patches in multiple places was growing steadily.
Currently BoringSSL is the SSL library in Chrome/Chromium, Android (but it's not part of the NDK) and a number of other apps/programs.
