The git source uses git_SHA1_Update() and friends to call into the
code that computes the hashes. Traditionally, we used to map these
directly to underlying implementation of the SHA-1 hash (e.g.
SHA1_Update() from OpenSSL or blk_SHA1_Update() from block-sha1/).
This arrangement however makes it hard to tweak behaviour of the
underlying implementation without fully replacing. If we want to
introduce a tweaked_SHA1_Update() wrapper to implement the "Update"
in a slightly different way, for example, the implementation of the
wrapper still would want to call into the underlying implementation,
but tweaked_SHA1_Update() cannot call git_SHA1_Update() to get to
the underlying implementation (often but not always SHA1_Update()).
Add another level of indirection that maps platform_SHA1_Update()
and friends to their underlying implementations, and by default make
git_SHA1_Update() and friends map to platform_SHA1_* functions.
Doing it this way will later allow us to map git_SHA1_Update() to
tweaked_SHA1_Update(), and the latter can use platform_SHA1_Update()
in its implementation.
