the label is only set when generating the key, if you move the key -  
between architecture or HSM:s - the label stays the same.

perhaps we should considering setting the CKA_ID to a plain UUID  
like D242124C-B411-4E33-BBB0-44F60C607275

- easy to generate (and no rename after generated needed)
- will never collide
- no crypto discussions
