Well, I don't know what to say. The main reason for using an EC parent
for RSA keys is that TPM2_CreatePrimary for an RSA primary can take
minutes to run on a slow TPM ... you never want to have that happen
because the primary is generated on the fly for most key operations;
whereas an EC primary is an easy calculation and takes milliseconds
even on the slowest of TPMs. I didn't think anyone would be stupid
enough to try to do an ephemeral RSA primary, so I never bothered even
mentioning it in the docs.
