Add an optimized x86_64 vpaes ctr128_f and remove bsaes.

Brian Smith suggested applying vpaes-armv8's "2x" optimization to
vpaes-x86_64. The registers are a little tight (aarch64 has a whole 32
SIMD registers, while x86_64 only has 16), but it's doable with some
spills and makes vpaes much more competitive with bsaes. At small- and
medium-sized inputs, vpaes now matches bsaes. At large inputs, it's a
~10% perf hit.

bsaes is thus pulling much less weight. Losing an entire AES
implementation and having constant-time AES for SSSE3 is attractive.
Some notes:

- The fact that these are older CPUs tempers the perf hit, but CPUs
  without AES-NI are still common enough to matter.

- This CL does regress CBC decrypt performance nontrivially (see below).
  If this matters, we can double-up CBC decryption too. CBC in TLS is
  legacy and already pays a costly Lucky13 mitigation.

- The difference between 1350 and 8192 bytes is likely bsaes AES-GCM
  paying for two slow (and variable-time!) aes_nohw_encrypt
  calls for EK0 and the trailing partial block. At larger inputs, those
  two calls are more amortized.

- To that end, bsaes would likely be much faster on AES-GCM with smarter
  use of bsaes. (Fold one-off calls above into bulk data.) Implementing
  this is a bit of a nuisance though, especially considering we don't
  wish to regress hwaes.

- I'd discarded the key conversion idea, but I think I did it wrong.
  Benchmarks from
  https://boringssl-review.googlesource.com/c/boringssl/+/33589 suggest
  converting to bsaes format on-demand for large ctr32 inputs should
  give the best of both worlds, but at the cost of an entire AES
  implementation relative to this CL.

- ARMv7 still depends on bsaes and has no vpaes. It also has 16 SIMD
  registers, so my plan is to translate it, with the same 2x
  optimization, and see how it compares. Hopefully that, or some
  combination of the above, will work for ARMv7.

BoringSSL

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.
