Replaces existing vectorized ChaCha20 code with verified HACL*

TLS servers are able to handle a ClientHello statelessly, if the
client supports TLS 1.3. If the server sends a HelloRetryRequest, it
is possible to discard the server socket, and make a new socket to
handle any subsequent ClientHello. This better enables stateless
server operation. (This feature is added in support of QUIC, but it
also has utility for DTLS 1.3 servers.)

Due to the update of mozilla-nss apache2-mod_nss needs to be updated
to change to the SQLite certificate database, which is now the default
