_DISABLE _CHACHAPOLY to allow compiling without Cha Cha20/Poly1305
Oracle wants a compile-time flag to exclude ChaCha/Poly from an NSS build.
The specific issue is US companies that provide patches for current product releases. New ciphers require a new export approval and such approvals usually align with new feature releases. Thus adding a cipher removes the ability to provide NSS updates in a patch. I believe this would impact US companies exporting a product that bundles or packages NSS.
Patch at: https://codereview.appspot.com/286270043 ssl_gtests succeed, excluding the ChaCha-specific ones.
