Due to the fact that there's still confusion on how this is meant to be
implemented, but mainly because CK_PKCS5_PBKD2_PARAMS2 is not in the
Committee Specification, I've removed CK_PKCS5_PBKD2_PARAMS2 from the
pkcs11t.h and uploaded a WD04 revision of the header:


I think it's important that the header reflects the specification that
we voted on. As we make amendments, we can add stuff back into the header.
