Jan Cholasta, you implemented the check in 2011. What purpose does it have?

hostname == CN has been deprecated by RFC 2818 for some time, see
https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2818#section-3.1  The current check is
also not sufficient to prevent forgery. Browsers and modern TLS
libraries completely ignore CN when a dNSName SAN extension is present.
