Follow up, focusing on the crashing on null context.

In a previous mail I said:

    I am not sure how to deal with a failing libhsm. We could abort the
    drudger, stop the signer, retry until eternity,

I have now implemented I think a reasonable strategy in trunk, r6450.
If this happens, the signer will fail the sign task, back off the task
and reload the engine. This will stop workers and drudgers, reopen the
connection to the HSM and start workers and drudgers again. The next
time, the backed off task runs (or another task that is scheduled
earlier), the drudgers try to create a new context and do the sign jobs.

Let me know if you are satisfied with this approach.

Best regards,
  Matthijs
