Argh, no. OpenSSL has boringssl as a git submodule.

edk2/CryptoPkg/Library/OpensslLib/openssl$ cat .gitmodules
[submodule "boringssl"]
path = boringssl

That's right, but it shouldn't matter. In edk2, I always use

$ git submodule update --init --force

and I never pass the "--recursive" flag. This is also how I tested the
upgrade to OpenSSL-1.1.1b, before edk2-stable201905 was tagged. The
boringssl sub-sub-module is not needed for edk2's purposes.

We might want to drop "--recursive" from "OpenSSL-HOWTO.txt", instead.
