[Pkg-freeradius-maintainers] Bug#863673: Bug#863673: CVE-2017-9148: FreeRADIUS TLS resumption authentication bypass

I got the idea from https://www.debian.org/security/faq#upload. Is the FAQ
outdated, or did I read it wrong? If the latter, please elaborate so that
we can update the docs to be more clear.

Note that FreeRADIUS is not complex to test. The only functional tests I do
before uploading are running autopkgtest and checking whether a freshly
installed FreeRADIUS starts up.

Also note that the patch is rather simple — it permanently disables the TLS
session caching by replacing the config option with “false” in the code. I
have attached the corresponding patches for the jessie and wheezy version.

Please let me know how to proceed from here.
