Is it intentional that 2.8.2 does contain 21bc1439e5, but does not contain
9b0dc81885 and c9dba57f8d?  Moreover, is 21bc1439e5 still needed with 74b6d92f96
applied?  It seems that if there is NUL, GNUTLS_E_ASN1_DER_ERROR is returned
earlier or res is passed through _gnutls_x509_data2hex() and hence should not
contain NULs any more.
