the added roots requested in this bug, with the requested (or changed) trust
flags, as requested in comment 0 of this bug.  

Please download that attachment from

Check it for viruses, and then follow the instructions given in 
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=493660#c2 
to test it out.  Please report back HERE, in THIS bug, whether it contains
the right cert, by the right name, with the right trust flags.

Can you add the patched certdata.c, nssckbi.h and certdata.txt (this one is most likely not needed) so I can produce a build for Linux in order to verify?
Eddy, 
The patch you seek is attached to bug 493660.  Beware, that file has windows
line endings, which you'll have to change before you apply the patch on Linux.

The one line patch to enable your root CA is found at

The patch doesn't cleanly apply with the NSS version I have, that's why I asked for the modified files. :S
