Fix ASN1_STRING_print_ex with negative integers.

ASN1_STRING and ASN1_TYPE type values almost line up, but not quite.
Negative INTEGERs are not possible in X509_NAME (tag2bit maps INTEGER to
0), but negative ENUMERATEDs are (tag2bit maps ENUMERATED to
B_ASN1_UNKNOWN). See for some notes on
this mess. Either way, the library will freely produce ASN1_STRING
INTEGERs and ENUMERATEDs in non-MSTRING contexts, so get this case

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.
