Patch out the aes_nohw fallback in bsaes_ctr32_encrypt_blocks.

bsaes_ctr32_encrypt_blocks previously fell back to the table-based
aes_nohw_encrypt for inputs under 128 bytes. Instead, just run the usual
bsaes code, though it means we compute more blocks than needed.

This fixes some (but not all) the timing leaks and is needed for later
bsaes work.

Performance-wise, x86_64 actually sees a performance improvement for all but
tiny inputs. ARM does see a loss at small inputs however.

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.
