Jakub Jelen created an issue: https://gitlab.com/gnutls/gnutls/issues/946

## Description of problem:
Trying to list CK_EC_EDWARDS public key from PCKCS#11 module fails.

The GnuTLS I am using is behaving like it would not know this key type (see the logs below).

## Version of gnutls used:

## Distributor of gnutls (e.g., Ubuntu, Fedora, RHEL)

## How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

 * Build OpenSC with EdDSA support (or have different PKCS#11 module supporting ED keys -- softhsm)
 * Generate Ed25519 key pair in module (I used Nitrokey with GNUK applet and softhsm)
 * Try to list objects in the pkcs11 module

## Actual results:
$ PKCS11SPY=`realpath src/pkcs11/.libs/opensc-pkcs11.so` p11tool -d9999 --list-all --provider `realpath src/pkcs11/.libs/pkcs11-spy.so` "pkcs11:model=PKCS%2315%20emulated;manufacturer=OpenPGP%20project;serial=fffe43245521;token=OpenPGP%20card%20%28User%20PIN%29"

|<3>| ASSERT: pkcs11.c[pkcs11_obj_import_pubkey]:1942
|<3>| ASSERT: pkcs11.c[pkcs11_import_object]:2165

## Expected results:
The EdDSA keys should be listed  as objects.

If I see right, this functionality should be in since b2d81349 (~1 year ago), while my release is just 2 month old, but it does not look like working with softhsm2 nor with OpenSC (https://github.com/OpenSC/OpenSC/pull/1960).
