Thanks for your comments. I am attaching an updated patch based on your comments.

It should be "client certificate passphrases".

Yes this is fixed in the new patch.

Oops that was a mistake. Removed :)

The original function handles the caching of username and password, but here we
do only passphrase caching. Yes, it duplicates code, but it is difficult to
identify whether we are using this function for SVN_AUTH_CRED_SIMPLE or
SVN_AUTH_CRED_SSL_CLIENT_CERT_PW since it is hardcoded in the function. I haven
changed it in the updated patch.

Yes this is merged now.
