Fix and test EVP_PKEY_CTX copying.

The RSA-PSS salt length was not being copied, and copying an Ed25519
EVP_MD_CTX did not work.

This is rather pointless (an EVP_PKEY_CTX is just a bundle of
parameters), and it's unlikely anyone ever will use this. But since
OpenSSL's EVP_PKEY signing API reuses EVP_MD_CTX and EVP_MD_CTX_copy_ex
is plausible in that scenario, we're stuck making EVP_MD_CTX_copy_ex
reachable for EVP_PKEY too. That then implies EVP_PKEY_dup should exist,
and if it exists we should be testing it.

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.
