Summary: performance enhancement for OpenSSL::Cipher::Cipher.update

Initial Comment:
The patch lets OpenSSL::Cipher::Cipher.update take an optional String parameter to reuse as the output buffer just like IO.read.

There is an approximate 10-15% speed improvement when using doing encryption/decryption in a tight loop.
