scrypt reference vectors

Libsodium exposes both a simplified scrypt KDF/password storage API which parametrizes the CPU and memory load in term of a opslimit parameter and a memlimit one, and a “traditional” low-level API parametrized in terms of a (N, r, p) triple.

While we used the vectors from RFC 7914 to test the traditional API, the simplified API is only implemented by libsodium, and therefore we just added a KDF generation check using the ascii encoded passphrase “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.”, and verified the results were the same we could get from the version of hashlib.scrypt, as provided in python version 3.6 stdlib.
