Nice!  What would it take to add support for Ed25519 too?  Do we need to
allocate any new PKCS#11 identifiers?  The Gnuk smartcard supports
Ed25519 but I don't know if it is common to use it with OpenSSH through
PKCS#11 (I would expect it to be used with OpenSSH through GnuPG's
gpg-agent).  At least it might be useful as a test case.
