Add support for draft-ietf-tls-downgrade-scsv to NSS


(NSS :: Libraries, enhancement, P1)

In the Google Chrome tree, there is already a patch that implements support for the fallback SCSV:

I am not sure what the state of that implementation is, with respect to the specification. Wan-Teh and Adam, are there changes to that patch that would be needed to bring it in sync with the current draft? Is there any significant reason why we should wait to add support for this, off by default, to NSS?

Thanks Wan-Teh.

I had different text here:

The server rejected the handshake because the client downgraded to a lower TLS version than the server supports.

This is now IANA assigned.

Martin: I made the changes you suggested. I won't be able to
check this in until next Monday because the NSS tree is closed
in preparation for the NSS 3.17 release.

I take it then that this is going to miss 3.17.  When is this likely to land Firefox side?

I imagine this will land in NSS 3.17.1. mozilla-central can take betas of 3.17.1 as soon as they're ready, really (see for example bug 1020695).

Patch pushed to mozilla-inbound as part of NSS_3_17_1_BETA1:
Wan-Teh, does this look right? I have added the dummy bit as discussed, for full binary compatibility (even if it were unnecessary, it shouldn't hurt).
