    certtool: Align warning about --provable with actual code · f5a1b253
    Daniel Kahn Gillmor authored
    If I try to generate an ed25519 key, it is *not* an ECDSA key.  But I
    see this warning:
        0 dkg@host:~$ certtool --generate-privkey --provable --key-type ed25519
        Generating a 256 bit EdDSA (Ed25519) private key ...
        The --provable parameter cannot be used with ECDSA keys.
        1 dkg@host:~$
    Looking at the code and documentation, it's clear that --provable only
    works for RSA and DSA.  This fix aligns the warning message with the
    underlying mechanism.
