(ITS#6589) Patch - Mozilla NSS - support use of self signed CA certs as server certs

Full_Name: Rich Megginson
Version: 2.4.23
OS: Fedora

Submission from: (NULL) (

MozNSS doesn't like self-signed CA certs that are also used for 
TLS/SSL server certs (such as generated by openssl req -x509)
CERT_VerifyCertificateNow returns SEC_ERROR_UNTRUSTED_ISSUER in that case
so, see if the cert and issuer are the same cert, and allow the
use of it (with a warning)
