Merge #12537: [arith_uint256] Make it safe to use "self" in operators

Authored by jasonbcox on Aug 7 2019, 20:41.



b120f7b [test] Add tests for self usage in arith_uint256 (Karl-Johan Alm)
08b17de [arith_uint256] Do not destroy *this content if passed-in operator may reference it (Karl-Johan Alm)

Pull request description:

Before this fix (see test commit), `v *= v` would result in `0` because `operator*=` set `*this` (`==b`) to `0` at the start. This patch changes the code to use `a` as temporary for `*this`~~, with drawback that `*this` is set to `a` at the end, an extra `=` operation in other words~~.
