  MFC r259286,259424,259425:
    Apply patch from upstream Heimdal for encoding fix
    RFC 4402 specifies the implementation of the gss_pseudo_random()
    function for the krb5 mechanism (and the C bindings therein).
    The implementation uses a PRF+ function that concatenates the output
    of individual krb5 pseudo-random operations produced with a counter
    and seed.  The original implementation of this function in Heimdal
    incorrectly encoded the counter as a little-endian integer, but the
    RFC specifies the counter encoding as big-endian.  The implementation
    initializes the counter to zero, so the first block of output (16 octets,
    for the modern AES enctypes 17 and 18) is unchanged.  (RFC 4402 specifies
    that the counter should begin at 1, but both existing implementations
    begin with zero and it looks like the standard will be re-issued, with
    test vectors, to begin at zero.)
    This is upstream's commit f85652af868e64811f2b32b815d4198e7f9017f6,
    from 13 October, 2013:
    % Fix krb5's gss_pseudo_random() (n is big-endian)
    % The first enctype RFC3961 prf output length's bytes are correct because
    % the little- and big-endian representations of unsigned zero are the
    % same.  The second block of output was wrong because the counter was not
    % being encoded as big-endian.
    % This change could break applications.  But those applications would not
    % have been interoperating with other implementations anyways (in
    % particular: MIT's).
  Bump __FreeBSD_version accordingly and add a note in UPDATING.
