patch for secure PIN entry


Find below a minor patch to allow the use of smartcards in readers that
have their own
PIN entry keypads (Secure PIN entry) such as the SPR332 and most
chipcard devices.

Tested on Solaris, FreeBSD and MacOSX against various cards and

I’ve left the pkcs11_interactive check in place. Arguably - with some
Secure PIN readers
it may be better to move this just in front of the keyboard entry ONLY;
as there are some
secure PIN keypads that use means which are somewhat suitable to
operation. But I thought it better to let this wait until an actual use
case warrants this
and/or the need for a special flag/argument to control such.
