Push an error if custom private keys fail.

The private key callback may not push one of its own (it's possible to
register a custom error library and whatnot, but this is tedious). If
the callback does not push any, we report SSL_ERROR_SYSCALL. This is not
completely wrong, as "syscall" really means "I don't know, something you
gave me, probably the BIO, failed so I assume you know what happened",
but most callers just check errno. And indeed cert_cb pushes its own
error, so this probably should as well.

Update-Note: Custom private key callbacks which push an error code on
    failure will report both that error followed by
    SSL_R_PRIVATE_KEY_OPERATION_FAILED. Callbacks which did not push any
    error will switch from SSL_ERROR_SYSCALL to SSL_ERROR_SSL with

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.
