[gnutls-dev] [PATCH] another large RSA modulus problem

The same Thawte certificate as last time (with a 2048 byte signature
length) triggers a new problem in lib/x509/x509.c.  Patch bumps length
from 640 to 2400.  Should this just be MAX_PARAMETER_SIZE instead?

Also, any particular reason you're overestimating sizes like this?  In
most of these cases you can assume powers of two, so, why e.g. 640
instead of 512, etc?
