Enable distributions to enforce the rejection of ancient and
insecure Kerberos enctypes in the kernel's RPCSEC_GSS
implementation. These are the single-DES encryption types that
were deprecated in 2012 by RFC 6649.

Enctypes that were deprecated more recently (by RFC 8429) remain
fully supported for now because they are still likely to be widely
used.
