GSSContext methods.

There is consensus among the WG for this document, and it saw active
discussion and review by WG members. As a ‘bis’ document, all errata

GSSContext methods were brought up and addressed during the WG Last

Intellectual Property:
There are no intellectual property disclosures against this document,
and all authors have confirmed compliance with BCPs 78 and 79.

2853, which is the predecessor to RFC 5653. The references are used
only during explanation of the differences since RFC 2853.
