Adam Langley and CQ bot account: commit-bot@chromium.org delocate: use 64-bit GOT offsets in the large memory model.
I tried to save space and use 32-bit GOT offsets since a GOT > 2GiB is
crazy. However, Clang's linker emits 64-bit relocations even for .long,
thus the four bytes following each offset get stomped. It mostly works
because the relocations are applied in order, thus the following
relocation gets stomped but is then processed and fixed. But there's
four bytes of stomp at the end which hits the module integrity hash,
which is fatal.

This could be fixed by adding four bytes of padding after the list of
offsets, but that's piling a hack on a hack. So this change just
switches to 64-bit offsets.

BoringSSL

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.
