Add pkcs11 command

What you need to do on bind is to create a whole OSSL_STORE_LOADER for
pkcs11. OSSL_STORE_LOADER_set_open only sets the opening functions,
which is expected to take a URI and parse that into something
sensible, and return a context. There are other functions to set as
well, such as the 'load', 'eof', 'error' and 'close' functions.
The OSSL_STORE_LOADER callback set is designed to work somewhat
vaguely like the stdio API, but instead of handling a set of bytes, it
handles a set of objects, which can be whatever the OSSL_STORE API
knows how to handle.
When you're done building the OSSL_STORE_LOADER (including a scheme
name, that's absolutely important), you hook it into libcrypto with
OSSL_STORE_register_loader(), an voilà, you should be able to do this:
openssl storeutil -engine yourengine \
(I'm sorry, I don't know the URI scheme enough to say how to specify
that you want to get a list of all accessible certificates or other
There is the manual OSSL_STORE_LOADER(3) found in doc/man3/OSSL_STORE_LOADER.pod,
and the 'file:' scheme loader is in crypto/store/loader_file.c, but
fair warning, that one is a bit more complex than you would probably
expect from the average store loader.
