// to the certDB and keyDB. It also has a bug which causes concurrent key pair
// generations to scribble over each other. To work around this, we synchronize
// writes to the NSS databases with a global lock. The lock is hidden beneath a
// function for easy disabling when the bug is fixed. Callers should allow for
// it to return NULL in the future.
