>> Please review this patch that ensures that all exceptions thrown by SSLEngine delegated tasks are translated to alerts.
>> All exceptions should already be translated to SSLExceptions and alerts by the time we exit from context.dispatch; these exceptions are rethrown by `conContext.fatal` without modification. With this patch the remaining exceptions are translated to `internal_error` alerts.
>> SSLSocket implements similar handling in SSLSocketImpl#startHandshake. SSLSocket rethrows `SocketException`s without modification, and translates other `IOException`s to `handshake_failure` alerts. SSLEngine does not need to handle `SocketException`s, and IMO `internal_error` is a better choice here.
>> Tier1-3 tests pass.
