Rec 4.0.x: be more resilient with broken auths #5726

Short description

This PR solves an issue where we would SERVFAIL while trying to validate zones for which the auths do either not understand EDNS0 or give NXDOMAIN/SERVFAIL answers for non-A/AAAA queries.

The first commit ensures we stop validating a name once we hit an Insecure zone cut, all the while cleaning up getZoneCuts (no more pointer magic).

The second commit makes EDNS0 not mandatory anymore for DNSSEC (to work around broken auths).


I have:

  • read the document
  • compiled and tested this code
  • included documentation (including possible behaviour changes)
  • documented the code
  • added or modified regression test(s)
  • added or modified unit test(s)

Looks good, although I have the feeling that we should rename ednsMANDATORY in this PR to avoid mistakes later.
