NACK,  per that bug this is supposed to be configurable systemwide for
gnutls. We need to investigate why Jaroslav could not get that to work,
since we don't want to be adding custom application specific TLS config
for every part of the virt stack that uses TLS (libvirt, gtk-vnc, spice-gtk,
spice, qemu, etc).
