The attached patch works around a bug in python-nss triggered by
unrecognised PKCS#10 request extensions.  It is needed for
https://fedorahosted.org/freeipa/ticket/4752 but can be reverted
once the python-nss bug is fixed.

Thanks,
Fraser

Subject: [PATCH] Work around python-nss bug on unrecognised OIDs

A bug in python-nss causes an error to be thrown when converting an
unrecognised OID to a string.  If cert-request receives a PKCS #10
CSR with an unknown extension, the error is thrown.

Work around this error by first checking if the OID is recognised
and, if it is not, using a different method to obtain its string
representation.

Once the python-nss bug is fixed, this workaround should be
reverted.  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1246729
