p11-kit multiarch-ification was not reverted. Its module search-path is
still /usr/lib/$arch/pkcs11. (See p11tool --provider foo)

This bug is not about p11kit switching to multiarch but about (possibly)
transitioning all pkcs11 modules from /usr/lib/pkcs11 to
/usr/lib/$arch/pkcs11 so they can be used via p11-kit by specifiying a
relative instead of an absolute path.

ATM we seem to be split about 50/50: opensc-pkcs1, gnome-keyring and
p11-kit-modules itself install to the multi-arch path, opencryptoki
and coolkey use /usr/lib/pkcs11.
