Because we can get slot information from keys manager in the
xmlSecKeyInfoCtxPtr, so I think we can avoid use "getSlot" things here.
The keys manager turns out again, I think we can put the "getSlot"
functions at keys manager. If you have time, you can have a look at the
"keystore.c" of my demo, which provide a xmlSecKeyStore and a routine
returns a xmlSecKeysMngrPtr. I used the "xmlSecNssKeyStoreGetSlot"
function when I process X509 certificate( see certificates.c ).
