Can you please clarify what gnutls_x509_crq_get_dn_by_oid() stores in the area 
I point out to it with the 'buf' argument?

The docs says it should be "a pointer to a structure to hold the name", but 
doesn't mention what structure or how such a struct should look like.

I currently use it like this:

   rc = gnutls_x509_crt_get_dn_by_oid(x509_cert, GNUTLS_OID_X520_COMMON_NAME,
                                      0, /* the first and only one */
                                      TRUE, /* give to me raw please */

... but I can't make sense from what it provides.
