> Deferred TLS initialization is used with Mozilla NSS. The real initialization
> takes place when the TLS context is needed for the first time. If the
> initialization parameters were freed immediately after tlsm_ctx_init was called,
> they were not available at the time of deferred initialization which caused
> segmentation fault.
> This situation happens e.g. with syncrepl.
> With this patch, initialization parameters are copied and stored until the
> deferred initialization is finished. The parameters are freed afterwards.

> Patch uploaded.
