 sorting set of attributes (previous had errors)

 This is a DER thing so I guess this would affect the unauthenticated
 attributes too and, probably, a lot of other cases in Mono.Security.dll.

+You're right, it is a DER thing, but it doesn't really matter if the
+unauthenticated attributes are not sorted correctly, since they're not
+signed. Having unsorted authenticated attributes is more serious
+because it breaks the signature for some implementations, like BC.
