While trying fix the issue 1928: https://bugs.gnupg.org/gnupg/issue1928
With GnuPG 2.1, the secret keys are under control of gpg-agent.
Invoking gpg with --passphrase (-file, -fd), the gpg frontend needs to
supply passphrase to gpg-agent. I think that the feature of
loopback-pinentry mode and/or preset_passphrase could be used for
However, those features are disabled as defaults. Are there any
reason those feature could be disabled?
I think that loopback-pinentry mode should be always supported so that
--passphrase option of gpg can work well.
