B<nchecks == BN_prime_checks>, a number of iterations is used that
yields a false positive rate of at most 2^-64 for random input.
The error rate depends on the size of the prime and goes down for bigger primes.
-The rate is 2^-80 starting at 308 bits, 2^-112 at 852 bit, 2^-128 at 1080 bits,

When the source of the prime is not random or not trusted, the number
of checks needs to be much higher to reach the same level of assurance:
