Tag for Cocoapods.

These tags exist purely because Cocoapods needs them. They do not denote any
special point in development and are tagged based on time, not stability.
Work around yaSSL bug.

yaSSL has a couple of bugs in their DH client implementation. This
change works around the worst of the two.

Firstly, they expect the the DH public value to be the same length as
the prime. This change pads the public value as needed to ensure this.

Secondly, although they handle the first byte of the shared key being
zero, they don't handle the case of the second, third, etc bytes being
zero. So whenever that happens the handshake fails. I don't think that
there's anything that we can do about that one.

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.
