Add a test for ASN1_mbstring_copy and clean up.

In writing the tests, I noticed that the documentation was wrong. First,
the maximum lengths are measured in codepoints, not bytes.

Second, the TODO was wrong. We actually do handle this correctly,
*almost*. Rather, the bug is that the function assumes |mask| contains
no extraneous bits. If it does, all extraneous bits are interpreted as
B_ASN1_UTF8STRING. This seems like a bug, so I've gone ahead and fixed
that, with a test.

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.
