    Use device ID from client SSL certificate, not UDP packet · b706750a

    Consider the following scenario:
    1. We send a UDP broadcast
    2. We receive a reply from with device ID "foo"
    3. We connect to, and find that the device's certificate
       is actually for a different ID "bar". This could be because the
       packet did not actually originate from, or this host is
       malicious / malfunctioning.
    4. We remember that device ID "foo" has certificate with common name "bar".
    5. When we finally attempt to connect to the real device ID "foo", we
       reject their certificate (common name "foo"). We can now never
       successfully connect to "foo".
    On some network (mis-)configurations, this completely prevents
    kdeconnectd from connecting to any peers, because a reply which is
    seen as originating from the local interface address will cause
    kdeconnectd to immediately connect to itself and remember its own
    Address this by using the certificate display name of the peer, which
    will match the real device ID.
