Sorry for jumping in :-)

Imho the P11 layer always needs attention. To work properly we're
relying on some patches, where parts was recently merged into OpenJDK.
We just started testing the Amazon CloudHSM, and that requires changes
to SunPKCS11 as well to work. Not always bad in SunPKCS11 as some P11
libraries out there do strange non-conforming stuff, but there's room
for more flexibility nevertheless.
