[gnutls-devel] certtool bug: key_purpose_oids ignored when generating CSR

I'm using certtool to generate a certificate for EAP authentication. I
was trying to use the key_purpose_oids option to add the necessary OID
to the CSR, but the code in generate_request never checks the value of
this option.

If generating a certificate directly without an intermediate CSR it
works, because generate_certificate calls get_key_purpose_set; but there
is no corresponding function to add the OIDs to a gnutls_x509_crq_t.
