Do I post this here? I have never posted a patch before, so I am kinda
new to this.

Removed optional KeyIdentifer and MesageDigest fields, which 
weren't being used, and caused certain servers not to respond
when these fields were included with null values.

<   cyg_uint32    KeyIdentifier;          /* Optional */
<   cyg_uint8     MessageDigest[16];      /* Optional */
