The patch slightly breaks backwards compatibility. Exim is not able
anymore to read old-format (4.50 and earlier) gnutlsparams file. - It
is necessary to remove the old file on upgrades from older versions,
otherwise exim aborts TLS connections with 

TLS error on connection from ... (DH params import): Base64 decoding error.
