Just a note to everyone looking at picking up bugs in the pkcs11 or 
kernel crypto area.  For testing crypto modules you MUST have a 
certificate issued by Sun using the process described here:


Solaris Express Software Developer Collection
        >> Solaris Security for Developers Guide
        >> F.  Packaging and Signing Cryptographic Providers

I know that there are no certs issued to any of the people requesting 
sponsors because I see all the cert requests.  What this means is that 
no testing has been done other than possibly compilation.  While this 
may be sufficient for changing a spelling mistake in a comment it isn't 
in the general case.  I'm not trying to discourage anyone from 
sponsoring or submitting requests but it is important that the submitter 
actually does testing too.
