This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Comment 4 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-07-10 21:42:59 EDT
This request was erroneously removed from consideration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which is currently under development.  This request will be evaluated for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.

Sorry about this, This bug is simply one Elio has cloned to pick up the NSS portion of a bigger fix. The spice fix required changes to coolkey, but the coolkey fix required changes for NSS.

Here's how to reproduct the issue with a smartcard reader.
Make sure coolkey is installed (rpm -q coolkey). if not install it (yum install coolkey)
Make sure pcscd is running (service pcscd status), if not start it (service pcscd restart)

Plug in the smartCard reader.
Start firefox.
Edit->Preferences->Avanced->Encryption->Security Devices->Load
   Module Name: Coolkey
   Module filename: libcoolkeypk11.so
Shutdown firefox.
remove the smartCard reader
Start firefox.
Edit->Preferences->Advanced->Encryption->Security Devices
> Coolkey should be listed without "E-Gate Slot 0 0" if you see "E-Gate Slot 0 0" then Coolkey does not have appropriate patches and you can't test the NSS change.
Insert the reader. 
Insert a card in the reader.
The reader and card should appear in the Security Devices window.

OK, it looks like bug 806038 never got a qa ack from coolkey qa, I've pinged in the bug and changed the owner to me (since the bug isn't in Alon's code). Without that coolkey patch, this bug can't be verified by QA.
