Update Information:

Update nss family of packages to nss-3.14.2 and nspr-4.9.5.

* NSS will now make use of the Intel AES-NI and AVX instruction sets for hardware-accelerated AES-GCM on 64-bit Linux systems.

* Initial man pages for some NSS command line tools have been added as part of the srpm. They are still under review, and contributions are welcome. The documentation is in docbook format and can be rendered as HTML and UNIX-style man pages using an optional build target.

* For a full list of bugs fixed in nss-3.14.2 please see:
