[strongSwan] How to disable 'CRL' in strongswan.conf?

Hello Yong Choo,

you can do that with an explicit load statement in strongswan.conf.

Just prepare two versions of strongswan.conf - one with the
revocation plugin in the load statement and one without it.
Depending on the situation you either start strongSwan with
one strongswan.conf or the second one. Is this dynamical enough?
