Get rid of err function codes.

Running make_errors.go every time a function is renamed is incredibly
tedious. Plus we keep getting them wrong.

Instead, sample __func__ (__FUNCTION__ in MSVC) in the OPENSSL_PUT_ERROR macro
and store it alongside file and line number. This doesn't change the format of
ERR_print_errors, however ERR_error_string_n now uses the placeholder
"OPENSSL_internal" rather than an actual function name since that only takes
the uint32_t packed error code as input.

This updates err scripts to not emit the function string table. The
OPENSSL_PUT_ERROR invocations, for now, still include the extra
parameter. That will be removed in a follow-up.
