There is one problem with this patch, it causes the self-test to be
enabled even when CONFIG_CRYPTO_LIB_CURVE25519 is off. So I think
what we should do is simply copy the blake2s paradigm more fully
by adding a dummy module for curve25519 that hosts just the
self-test. Something like this:

y, but CRYPTO_LIB_CURVE25519 may be set to m, this causes build

lib/crypto/curve25519-selftest.o: In function `curve25519':
curve25519-selftest.c:(.text.unlikely+0xc): undefined reference to `curve25519_arch'
lib/crypto/curve25519-selftest.o: In function `curve25519_selftest':
curve25519-selftest.c:(.init.text+0x17e): undefined reference to `curve25519_base_arch'

This is because the curve25519 self-test code is being controlled
by the GENERIC option rather than the overall CURVE25519 option,
as is the case with blake2s. To recap, the GENERIC and ARCH options
for CURVE25519 are internal only and selected by users such as
the Crypto API, or the externally visible CURVE25519 option which
in turn is selected by wireguard. The self-test is specific to the
the external CURVE25519 option and should not be enabled by the
Crypto API.

This patch fixes this by splitting the GENERIC module from the
CURVE25519 module with the latter now containing just the self-test.
