Currently, when doing a P12 import, CMS calls the NSS P12 import functions,
which import the leaf cert on the selected token, and all the other certs in the
softoken. This gets in the way of portability of smartcards. PSM needs to call a
new NSS function to import all the certs to the hardware token. See bug 142889.

I believe that I have confirmed that this bug is still alive in Firefox 1.0
Preview Release.  I'm using a Schlumberger smartcard and the Litronics
NetsignCAC PKCS#11 module.  Accessing sites that require client certificates
works fine in IE, but doesn't work in Firefox or Netscape 7.1.  (Or rather, it
works for some sites, but not others.)  After I explicitly added the chaining
certs as recognized CAs, then it the cert on the smartcard does work.

I don't think it's Firefox's role to implement this.
