[ext/openssl] Create Digest by OID
Currently it is not possible to create a Digest instance by using
the OID instead of the name (sn or ln).
oid = OpenSSL::ASN1::ObjectId.new('SHA1')
digest = OpenSSL::ASN1::Digest.new(oid.oid)
=> Unsupported digest algorithm (22.214.171.124.2.26).
This is counter-intuitive, since the only thing that is always
available in the case of object identifiers is the numeric oid,
sn or ln are not always present. Since sn and ln are also quite
error-prone (spelling), I'd like to suggest to have all three possibilities
for instantiating a Digest: by sn, by ln and by oid.
I included a patch and a test to support this behaviour.
