Alexander Sosedkin created an issue: https://gitlab.com/gnutls/gnutls/-/issues/1416

Advertizing a certificate compression not known to gnutls in CompressCertificateExtension leads to `illegal_parameter` instead of ignoring the extension and proceeding with no compression.

Code pointer: https://gitlab.com/gnutls/gnutls/-/blob/b69cbc76e46bbface6f92a0485a6c7ae646c6d6b/lib/ext/compress_certificate.c#L197

(Found using tlsfuzzer, though the [corresponding](https://github.com/tlsfuzzer/tlsfuzzer/pull/802) [code](https://github.com/tlsfuzzer/tlslite-ng/pull/484) isn't mainlined yet.)
