commit bbda79976b5c5095c5e6557311c86c623ba335f1
Author: Matt Caswell <matt at openssl.org>

    Fix ECDSA_SIG docs
    They incorrectly said that i2d_ECDSA_SIG returns 0 on error. In fact it
    returns a negative value on error.
    We fix this by moving the i2d_ECDSA_SIG/d2i_ECDSA_SIG docs onto the same
    page as all the other d2i/i2d docs.
    Fixes #9517
