curve25519: adhere to preconditions of fe_*.

Previously, the ed25519 and SPAKE implementations called field element
operations in ways that did not satisfy the preconditions about ranges
of limbs. Furthermore, replacing signed field arithmetic with unsigned field
arithmetic with similar specifications caused tests to fail.  This commit
addresses this in three steps:

(1) Split fe into fe and fe_loose, tracking the bounds
(2) Insert carry operations before uses of fe_add/fe_sub/fe_neg whose
input is already within only the loose bounds
(3) Assert that each field element is within the appropriate bounds at
the beginning and end of every field operation.

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.
