Patch to resolve

Description of problem:
Today the pesign rpm replaces /etc/pki/pesign when it is installed.  As a result, updates to pesign remove any manually added drivers for hardware tokens.

This results in removal of user configured behavior.

The attached patch adds two simple packages which will emulate persistent hardware drivers for pesign without removing the ability to provide a new /etc/pki/pesign with the official packge

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):pesign-0.112-7

How reproducible:100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. downgrade pesign
2. manually insert coolkey or opensc into /etc/pki/pesign
3. update pesign
4. note removal of drivers from /etc/pki/pesign

Actual results:
User added modules are remove

Expected results:
Method for retaining hardware drivers in database.

Additional info:
Attached patch resolves for coolkey and/or opensc
