[PATCH v5 11/12] sha256: add an SHA-256 implementation using libgcrypt




Generally, one gets better performance out of cryptographic routines
written in assembly than C, and this is also true for SHA-256.  In
addition, most Linux distributions cannot distribute Git linked against
OpenSSL for licensing reasons.

Most systems with GnuPG will also have libgcrypt, since it is a
dependency of GnuPG.  libgcrypt is also faster than the SHA1DC
implementation for messages of a few KiB and larger.

For comparison, on a Core i7-6600U, this implementation processes 16 KiB
chunks at 355 MiB/s while SHA1DC processes equivalent chunks at 337
MiB/s.

In addition, libgcrypt is licensed under the LGPL 2.1, which is
compatible with the GPL.  Add an implementation of SHA-256 that uses
libgcrypt.
