This will compute the wrong digest if called with simd_context=HAVE_FULL_SIMD
and then later with simd_context=HAVE_NO_SIMD, since poly1305_blocks_neon()
converts the accumulator from base 32 to base 26, whereas poly1305_blocks_arm()
assumes it is still in base 32.  Is that intentional?  I'm sure this is a rare
case, but my understanding is that the existing crypto API doesn't preclude
calling successive steps in different contexts.  And I'm concerned that it could
be relevant in some cases, e.g. especially if people are importing a hash state
that was exported earlier.  Handling it by silently computing the wrong digest
is not a great idea...
