Replace GnuTLSOCSPGraceTime with GnuTLSOCSPCacheTimeout

Configuring a timeout instead a time relative to the nextUpdate field
of the OCSP response has two main advantages:

  • The maximum cache lifetime is independent of any external data. The OCSP response is signed and the CA generally a trusted entity, but its policy is almost always outside the server admin's control and might change.
  • The principle is a lot simpler and thus less likely to lead to implementation or configuration errors.

Additionally a static timeout policy should make it easier to
implement asynchronous cache updates for MPMs that support it.
