I think the PolarSSL maintainer (Paul Bakker) was subscribed to this
list so maybe he will notice this thread. Since polarssl is intended to
be a very small ssl implementation, and it already handles 139 out of
the 140 certs in the bundle, I'm not sure the extra weight would be
worth it. But I really don't know how popular the ecdsa-with-SHA384
algorithm is in the wild, or how much effort it would be to implement,
so if nobody responds here within a few days I will pass the info on
to the polarssl mailing list.
