Airtower created a merge request: https://gitlab.com/gnutls/gnutls/-/merge_requests/1452

Project:Branches: airtower-luna/gnutls:fix-ocsp-signer-check to gnutls/gnutls:master
Author:   Airtower

According to [RFC 6960, section](https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/html/rfc6960#section- the id-kp-OCSPSigning key purpose is only needed for delegated signers, not signers explicitly set as trusted. The previous code would reject a signature directly from a CA on the trust list (without delegation) because the CA certificate didn't contain the id-kp-OCSPSigning key purpose.

The included tests check:

1. Is a signature directly from a CA on the trust list accepted?
2. Is a signature from a delegated signer issued by a CA on the trust list accepted?
3. Is a signature from a certificate without id-kp-OCSPSigning issued by a CA on the trust list rejected?

Note that the CA in these tests is also the one that issued the certificate the OCSP response is for, but the code (current and previous) doesn't enforce this.
