Route DHE through the SSL_ECDH abstraction as well.

This unifies the ClientKeyExchange code rather nicely. ServerKeyExchange
is still pretty specialized. For simplicity, I've extended the yaSSL bug
workaround for clients as well as servers rather than route in a

Chrome's already banished DHE to a fallback with intention to remove
altogether later, and the spec doesn't say anything useful about
ClientDiffieHellmanPublic encoding, so this is unlikely to cause

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.
