[openssl-dev] OpenSSL 1.1 X509_NAME issues

In OpenLDAP we reference X509_NAME->bytes->data directly, we want the DER 
bytes which we then pass thru our own DN validator/formatter. This no longer 
works with OpenSSL 1.1 and I don't see any provided method to return the DER 
bytes. I don't want a malloc'd copy, I just want read-only access to the bytes 
already cached inside the X509_NAME structure.
