Eric, I'm sorry for the delay! I've looked at your patch again, and I think
it looks good now. I would like you to amend your commits into one single
commit since keeping them separate does not add any value imo.

Also, you need to add tests for all changed code. There is an rb_SUITE in
sasl/test which can be extended.
