TNC should indicate the exact subset of ifixes needed for a given TNC Client

When a TNC verify operation is run, TNC creates a report, missingifixes.rpt.  But that reports lists the set of ifixes that have direct or indirect relevance to the endpoint.
For example, say that a system is vulnerable to a security issue that relates to AIX's openssl_advisory40.asc.  The TNC verify operation will list all ifixes that correspond
to that advisory.  Thus it would indicate the following ifixes are "missing":

However, probably only one of those ifixes is actually directly relevant to the endpoint.  Thus the request is to eliminate listing the ifixes that are not directly relevant
to the particular code levels installed on the TNC client host.
