(ITS#6595) Patch - Mozilla NSS - delay token auth until needed

Version: 2.4.23

URL: ftp://ftp.openldap.org/incoming/openldap-2.4.23-initauthtoken.patch
Submission from: (NULL) (

The code was doing all of the authentications to all of the tokens during the
init phase.  This was causing problems with NSS cert/key clients, prompting for
the cert/key db password, when it isn't needed, since it is only needed to get
private key information.  The patch is to just remove the token authentication
during init.  The code already authenticates to the token when private key
information is needed e.g. running in TLS/SSL server mode, or using client cert
