The database for SoftHSM is storing the PKCS#11 attributes as a binary
string. The PKCS#11 CK_ULONG is different on 32-bit and 64-bit. Thus a
problem to move the database between the two architectures.

I would suggest to migrate the keys using the key export/import
functionality in the softhsm tool.
