Someone to move the changes from the 2.10.x branch back on to 2.8.x, and
to make sure it is working properly.  There are self tests to check that
a backport is working:


The new API to query whether the extension is negotiated or not is also
needed, but that shouldn't cause any problems as far as I can see.  A
binary using the new API wouldn't work with the original gnutls in
stable, though, but I think that is an acceptable price?
