[PATCH FOR REVIEW]: Improve error output for NSS provider

Hi,

I'm trying to debug an issue with the NSS provider crashing on a
number of JTreg tests.  See
http://icedtea.classpath.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=469

I found a couple of issues in doing so:

* The stack trace is incomplete as a couple of exceptions are thrown
using only the message without including the cause
* The NSS wrapper can't handle a couple of newer NSS error codes

This patch:

http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~andrew/nss/webrev.01/jdk.patch

fixes both issues and extends:

allowing the native NSS error to be seen.

Ok to push to tl? If so, can I have a bug ID for this change?

Thanks,
