Infinite loop in RSA KeyPairGenerator

      Description

        When an even value is used for the RSA public exponent e, it is not possible to find a phi(n) that is relatively prime to e. The key generation routine still attempts to find one in an infinite loop. We can fix this by rejecting even values, and/or by exiting the loop after a fixed number of attempts.
