Mostly I was copying that from the beecrypt and NSS implementations, where the signature was padded before comparison. Are you saying I can skip the padding entirely at https://github.com/rpm-software-management/rpm/pull/129/files/a7bc1e416e2f0f193be63317701bd3b18e2934b6#diff-763b444493abc6d6f5549dafd08d9d07R523 ?

This is definitely a place where I don't actually know what I'm doing...
