You probably need to do that, indeed, to "format" the partition.  I'm
not 100% sure how we did it though.  The documentation coming with
SAFEnet HSMs is extensive, I suggestion you read that carefully :) and
you should find the "vtl" utility useful to inspect the impact of your work.

As Rickard says, this is for another PKCS #11 implementation, named
SoftHSM.  You should instead have a look at the lunasa prefix as you
installed it.  On *BSD it's probably somewhere like /usr/local/lunasa/

If it's not obvious to you, then an exchange of knowledge seems like a
good use of a mailing list :) but you should really spend some good time
on the SAFEnet documentation; it is perhaps as patronising as it is
