1.96.1. RHBA-2010:0699: bug fix update

Updated openCryptoki packages that resolve an issue are now available.
The openCryptoki package contains version 2.11 of the PKCS#11 API, implemented for IBM Cryptocards. This package includes support for the IBM 4758 Cryptographic CoProcessor (with the PKCS#11 firmware loaded), the IBM eServer Cryptographic Accelerator (FC 4960 on IBM eServer System p), the IBM Crypto Express2 (FC 0863 or FC 0870 on IBM System z), and the IBM CP Assist for Cryptographic Function (FC 3863 on IBM System z).
These updated openCryptoki packages provide fix for the following bug:
* previously, the overall performance of cryptographic operations degraded exponentially with the number of objects per token or open sessions per process. This was caused by the fact that OpenCryptoki used linked-lists to track objects and sessions in memory, thus, performing an exhaustive search in practically every PKCS#11 call. With this update, the overall performance remains constant. ( BZ#627560)
All users of openCryptoki are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve this issue.
