winssl: Enable hostname verification of IP address using SAN or CN

Original commit message was:
 Don't omit CN verification in SChannel when an IP address is used.

Side-effect of this change:
 SChannel and CryptoAPI do not support the iPAddress subjectAltName
 according to RFC 2818. If present, SChannel will first compare the
 IP address to the dNSName subjectAltNames and then fallback to the
 most specific Common Name in the Subject field of the certificate.

 This means that after this change curl will not connect to SSL/TLS
 hosts as long as the IP address is not specified in the SAN or CN
 of the server certificate or the verifyhost option is disabled.
