Correctly handle a zero value for X25519 deriveBits' length parameter

The Secure Curves spec draft states that we should trunk the derived
bits based on any non-null value passed in the length parameter. Our
currently implementation has been considering zero like null, so we
are returning the entire derived bits array.

The bug 1433707 mentions on ongoing discussion related to the lack of
interoperability on the handling of the deriveBits' length parameter
in several algorithms, being the X25519 one of them. The proposed
change in the spec could be backward-incompatible, so we need time to
evaluate the impact on Chrome's implementation.

While the mentioned spec change discussion continues, this CL fixes a bug in our implementation that considered zero as null. With this change zero will return an empty vector, which matches the current spec.

Learn how to Get Around the Chromium Source Code Directory Structure.

For historical reasons, there are some small top level directories. Now the guidance is that new top level directories are for product (e.g. Chrome, Android WebView, Ash). Even if these products have multiple executables, the code should be in subdirectories of the product.
