  Log Message:
  Document that the RSA e value is mandatory when importing.

The lab tried doing a RSA decryption primitive using just n (using p, q) and d.

This failed for 2 reasons:
(1) e is required when importing
(2) Internally e is used for blinding.

Note n and e can be calculated using:
n = pq
e = (1/d) mod (p-1)(q-1)
