Nettle applications are required to call
rsa_private_key_prepare and check the return value, before
using any other RSA private key functions. Failing to do so
will now lead to crashes for invalid private keys.
The Gnutls library used to not call rsa_private_key_prepare.
To avoid crashes when using Gnutls with an invalid private
key, Nettle performs additional checks for even moduli in
the functions the rsa_*_sign_tr, and rsa_decrypt_tr, which
are used by all recent versions of Gnutls.
