commit 57358a83a401ef469353b7ebdae0cf3b870a4d5e
Author: Matt Caswell <matt at openssl.org>

    req command incorrectly displays the bits for an EC key
    When the "req" command is used to generate a new EC key using the -newkey
    option it will incorrectly display:
     Generating a 2048 bit EC private key
    This commit fixes the message to not display the bit length for EC keys
    because we don't currently support getting that during generation.
    GitHub Issue #1068
