Implement draft-ietf-tls-curve25519-01 in Go.

This injects an interface to abstract between elliptic.Curve and a
byte-oriented curve25519. The C implementation will follow a similar

Note that this slightly tweaks the order of operations. The client sees
the server public key before sending its own. To keep the abstraction
simple, ecdhCurve expects to generate a keypair before consuming the
peer's public key. Instead, the client handshake stashes the serialized
peer public value and defers parsing it until it comes time to send
ClientKeyExchange. (This is analogous to what it was doing before where
it stashed the parsed peer public value instead.)

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.
