X.509: unpack RSA signatureValue field from BIT STRING
The signatureValue field of a X.509 certificate is encoded as a BIT STRING.
For RSA signatures this BIT STRING is of so-called primitive subtype, which
contains a u8 prefix indicating a count of unused bits in the encoding.
We have to strip this prefix from signature data, just as we already do for
key data in x509_extract_key_data() function.
This wasn't noticed earlier because this prefix byte is zero for RSA key
sizes divisible by 8. Since BIT STRING is a big-endian encoding adding zero
prefixes has no bearing on its value.
The signature length, however was incorrect, which is a problem for RSA
implementations that need it to be exactly correct (like AMD CCP).
