racoon stops on RRSIG in getcertsbyname

Bug Description

When using peers_certfile dnssec for racoon, it makes CERT RR lookup to fetch cert from DNS.
If CERT RR is protected by DNSSEC (as it's supposed to be) resolver will (may?) return RRSIG record to allow RR validity checks in app.
Current implementation of getcertsbyname (with patches) already sets NSEC options and checks authentity flag, however it bails on RRSIG.
Proposed patch simply makes function to continue on non-CERT RRs since there's no current framework to use RRSIG validation. With this approach it will iterate through entire reply in attempt to fish CERT RRs from an answer.

without it stops after "not T_CERT" message.
