A patch to claws-mail to use gpgme_data_new_from_filepart() instead of

(I didn't see a Plugins/PGPCore option, hopefully Plugins/Privacy is correct

The code in src/plugins/pgpcore/sgpgme.c creates a tmpfile to populate the
gpgme_data_t variable.

The function currently being called is: gpgme_data_new_from_file().

The mime data already contains the e-mail file and the relevant mime
coordinates, so why not just use the function gpgme_data_new_from_filepart()?

Creating a tmpfile seems unneccessary and wastefull.
Especially when one runs off a flashdisk that has a limited number of writes!

Or perhaps on a read-only filesystem, when one needs to check e-mails but not
download any new ones?
