a certificate of type gnutls_x509_crt_t

This function will set the part of the name of the Certificate subject,
specified by the given OID. The input string should be ASCII or UTF-8
Some helper macros with popular OIDs can be found in gnutls/x509.h With
this function you can only set the known OIDs. You can test for known
OIDs using gnutls_x509_dn_oid_known(). For OIDs that are not known (by
gnutls) you should properly DER encode your data, and call this func‐
tion with raw_flag set.
On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS is returned, otherwise a negative error
