If the NSS Internal Module has more slots (for example, as a result of an initialization sequence such as the one triggered from the libnsssysinit.so library), they will be ignored. The goal is to handle multiple-slots scenarios while keeping OpenJDK's previous behavior.

These NSS specific defines is better off to be placed in a separate header file for ease of maintenance. In the past when PKCS#11 version is updated, we just drop the latest header files in and replace existing ones. Why not adding them to  to j2secmod.h or pkcs11wrapper.h?
