Description (partial)

This is a doc bug to add an official note about the stricter requirement for importing a wildcard cert on an ASA running 9.0/9.1 code as opposed to 8.4 & previous code.  This is to be more compliant with RFC 5280 (see relevant 'commonName' info):

Prior to ASA 9.0/9.1, there was an enhancement request (CSCsl92337) to check the validity of a cert being imported so that it could also be exported later without error.  This gave a warning message for any invalid characters/values found during the import, including the wildcard (*) symbol.

Now with ASA 9.0/9.1 code, instead of just presenting a warning message when an invalid character/value is found during cert import, the ASA will reject the imported cert altogether.
