Let me see if I've understood.
Fedora 20 already have m2crypto-0.21.1-13.fc20
Fedora 19 has m2crypto-0.21.1-11

Looking at the RPM changelog [1], 0.21.1-11 on F19 and your 0.21.1-12 on F20 are just mass rebuild so no update needed on Fedora.

CentOS 7 has m2crypto-0.21.1-15 and don't need an update.

CentOS 6.6 has m2crypto-0.20.2-9 (yes, centos 6.6 is out http://isoredirect.centos.org/centos/6.6/)
which looks the same on 6.5.
Are you really sure that the issue is on m2crypto side and not on vdsm side?
If so, a bug against m2crytpo should be opened and quickly fixed on RHEL/CentOS.

I don't think that just rebuilding m2crypto from F20 is a long term solution.
