Reimplement d2i_PrivateKey.

Functions which lose object reuse and need auditing:
- d2i_PrivateKey

This removes evp_asn1.c's dependency on the old stack. (Aside from
obj/.) It also takes old_priv_decode out of EVP_ASN1_METHOD in favor of
calling out to the new-style function. EVP_ASN1_METHOD no longer has any
old-style type-specific serialization hooks, only the PKCS#8 and SPKI

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.
