Previously, when generating an RSA key with --bits=4096, certtool suggested:

  ** Note: You may use '--sec-param High' instead of '--bits 4096'

while the effect is not exactly the same: '--sec-param High' implies
3072 bits.  This adds a check whether the --sec-param argument matches
the actual bit length and otherwise omit the warning.

Fixes: #1320
