Do a cursory conversion of a few tests to GTest.

For now, this is the laziest conversion possible. The intent is to just
get the build setup ready so that we can get everything working in our
consumers. The intended end state is:

- The standalone build produces three test targets, one per library:

- Each FOO_test is made up of:

- emits variables crypto_test_sources and
  ssl_test_sources. These variables are populated with FindCFiles,
  looking for *

- The consuming file assembles those variables into the two test targets
  (plus decrepit) from there. This avoids having
  emit actual build rules.

- Our standalone builders, Chromium, and Android just run the top-level
  test targets using whatever GTest-based reporting story they have.

In transition, we start by converting one of two tests in each library
to populate the three test targets. Those are added to all_tests.json
and all_tests.go hacked to handle them transparently. This keeps our
standalone builder working., to start with, populates the new source lists
manually and subtracts them out of the old machinery. We emit both for
the time being. When this change rolls in, we'll write all the build
glue needed to build the GTest-based tests and add it to consumers'
continuous builders.

Next, we'll subsume a file-based test and get the consumers working with
that. (I.e. make sure the GTest targets can depend on a data file.)

Once that's all done, we'll be sure all this will work. At that point,
we start subsuming the remaining tests into the GTest targets and,
asynchronously, rewriting tests to use GTest properly rather than
cursory conversion here.

When all non-GTest tests are gone, the old hooks
will be removed, consumers updated to not depend on them, and standalone
builders converted to not rely on all_tests.go, which can then be
removed. (Unless bits end up being needed as a malloc test driver. I'm
thinking we'll want to do something with --gtest_filter.)

As part of this CL, I've bumped the CMake requirements (for
target_include_directories) and added a few suppressions for warnings
that GTest doesn't pass.

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.
