(ITS#6802) Patch - Mozilla NSS - restart modules before NSS_Init after a fork()

Full_Name: Rich Megginson

Submission from: (NULL) (

NSS enforces the pkcs11 requirement that modules should be unloaded after
a fork() - since there is no portable way to determine if NSS has been
already initialized in a parent process, we just call SECMOD_RestartModules
with force == FALSE before doing any NSS initialize calls - if the module has
been unloaded due to a fork, it will be reloaded, otherwise, it is a no-op.
