Patch to add SNMPv3 context support to check_snmp

Description of problem:
Using Nagios from EPEL on RHEL6:
The check_snmp plugin for Nagios allows for SNMPv3 requests, but it does not allow to set the context.
This prevents using it with Cisco hardware, for which the context is mandatory to query eg the port status on a switch with VLAN enabled.
Net-SNMP has supported setting the context for a while, using the -n parameter, so the same possibility is needed for check_snmp.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.0.3

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do a query of a Cisco switch port, using SNMPv3 

Actual results:

/usr/lib64/nagios/plugins/check_snmp -P 3 -L authPriv -a sha -x aes -U xxx -A xxx -X xxx -H switch -o .1.3.6.1.2.1.17.2.15.1.3.24 -s 5
SNMP CRITICAL - *Such Instance currently exists at this OID* |

Expected results:
/usr/lib64/nagios/plugins/check_snmp -P 3 -L authPriv -a sha -x aes -U xxx -A xxx -X xxx -N vlan-201 -H switch -o .1.3.6.1.2.1.17.2.15.1.3.24 -s 5
SNMP OK - 5 | iso.3.6.1.2.1.17.2.15.1.3.24=5 


Additional info:
I've been applying a patch found there and rebuilding from the source rpm:
https://build.opensuse.org/package/view_file/server:monitoring/nagios-plugins/nagios-plugins.check_snmp.snmpv3-context.patch?expand=1

It adds a -N parameter (-n is already in use).
The resulting binary has been working well for my needs, context can be used and no side effect so far, so I would appreciate if it could be considered for inclusion in EPEL.

The latest upgrade of the Nagios plugins went smoothly, and all my tests worked with them without any additional patching needed.
So I consider this to be fixed, thanks!
