This is a merge request analogous to the one just merged for CFB8.

The only doubt I have here is that in theory CMAC can return an arbitrary digest length between 1 and 16 bytes, however GnuTLS hmac (misnamed) API does not allow for variable length digest as far a sI can see, nor the self tests.

In practice this is not a big deal because internally the mac simply truncates the output to return anything shorter than 16 bytes, so users can do the same. The only issue is that I couldn't use SP800-38 CAV vectors because they give outputs for 4 or 15 bytes length, so I had to use a couple of vectors lifted from nettle's own tests.
