Release Notes Summary: cert list now displays long names for extensions


PUP-2995 allows certificate extensions to be referenced in manifests using the short name of the extension.

However, when executing `puppet cert print <certname>`, we print the oid as the name of the extension:

bundle exec puppet cert print <hostname>
        X509v3 extensions:
            Netscape Comment:
                .(Puppet Ruby/OpenSSL Internal Certificate
someotherdata   .

Since we now have a capability to specify the mapping of oid to short and long names, it would be useful to print the long name, like is done with other "known" extensions:

 $ bundle exec puppet cert print <hostname> --trusted_oid_mapping_file oid.yaml
        X509v3 extensions:
            Netscape Comment:
                .(Puppet Ruby/OpenSSL Internal Certificate
            My Long Name:
            My Other Long Name:
someotherdata   .

This is a one line change to the cert application, and perhaps certificate too?
