  1. Optimized Seal/Open routines for ChaCha20-Poly1305 for x86-64

    vkrasnov authored and agl committed Jan 19, 2017
    This is basically the same implementation I wrote for Go
    The Go implementation:
    The Cloudflare patch for OpenSSL:
    The Seal/Open is only available for the new version, the old one uses
    the bundled Poly1305, and the existing ChaCha20 implementations
    The benefits of this code, compared to the optimized code currently
    disabled in BoringSSL:
    * Passes test vectors
    * Faster performance: The AVX2 code (on Haswell), is 55% faster for 16B,
      15% for 1350 and 6% for 8192 byte buffers
    * Even faster on pre-AVX2 CPUs
    Feel free to put whatever license, etc. is appropriate, under the
    existing CLA.
    Benchmarks are for 16/1350/8192 chunk sizes and given in MB/s:
    Before (Ivy Bridge): 34.2   589.5  739.4
    After:               68.4   692.1  799.4
    Before (Skylake):    50    1233   1649
    After:              119.4  1736   2196
    After (Andy's):      63.6  1608   2261
