lib: rsa: add support to other openssl engine types than pkcs11



There are multiple other openssl engines used by HSMs that can be used to
sign FIT images instead of forcing users to use pkcs11 type of service.

Relax engine selection so that other openssl engines can be specified and
use generic key id definition formula.

Smartcard/USB token/HSM which can work with some openssl engine

For pkcs11 engine usage:
libp11 (provides pkcs11 engine)
p11-kit (recommended to simplify setup)
opensc (for smartcards and smartcard like USB devices)
gnutls (recommended for key generation, p11tool)
The following examples use the Nitrokey Pro. Instructions for other devices may vary.
For generic HSMs respective openssl engine must be installed and locateable by
openssl. This may require setting up LD_LIBRARY_PATH if engine is not installed
to openssl's default search paths.
PKCS11 engine support forms "key id" based on "keydir" and with
"key-name-hint". "key-name-hint" is used as "object" name and "keydir" if
defined is used to define (prefix for) which PKCS11 source is being used for
lookup up for the key.
PKCS11 engine key ids:
"pkcs11:<keydir>;object=<key-name-hint>;type=<public|private>"
or
"pkcs11:object=<key-name-hint>;type=<public|private>",
Generic HSM engine support forms "key id" based on "keydir" and with
"key-name-hint". If "keydir" is specified for mkimage it is used as a prefix in
"key id" and is appended with "key-name-hint".
Generic engine key ids:
"<keydir><key-name-hint>"
or
"<key-name-hint>"
As mkimage does not at this time support prompting for passwords HSM may need
key preloading wrapper to be used when invoking mkimage.
The following examples use the Nitrokey Pro using pkcs11 engine. Instructions
for other devices may vary.
