hello,

while developing a small program for fun that uses chacha,
i realised there were some important information missing
in the chacha(2) manpage.

i have added sections to the manpage that mentions
the IETF chacha's block counter overflow problem, and
a nonce reuse risk.

please tell me if i made a grammar or a technical mistake
somewhere.

(diff attached)
