    Fwd-port: Add a missing changelog entry back from
    When I merged the fix for #7351, and implemented proposal 214 (4-byte
    circuit IDs), I forgot to add a changes file.  Later, we never noticed
    that it didn't have one.
    Resolves ticket #11555.  Thanks to cypherpunks for noticing this was
    This is a cherry-pick of 75e10f58a97f051f7d8576f96c2e32fcb2f07ade into
    the master branch.

+      proposal 214.
   o Minor features (portability):
     - Tweak the curve25519-donna*.c implementations to tolerate systems
