Description Daniel Berrangé 2016-11-11 17:13:20 UTC
Description of problem:
Previously the client cert DN would get reported as


and with new version we're getting back


This is causing a regression for libvirt. The libvirt server has ablity
to set a whitelist against the DN string, against which we do a regex

eg the sysadmin may have defined a whitelist of


to allow all certs issed to libvirt clients.

This change in DN ordering by gnutls breaks any existing whitelists
our admins have setup, as well as breaking the libvirt test suite
which validates this.
