Subject: [PATCH] add missing strerror text for key management.

From: pelco <>

These error code messages are useful when dealing with public-private
keys and client-server applications.

I have been working on client applications that use libcurl to
communicate with a server. Usually, to access the APIs, clients have
to provide a secret key that the server can revoke or reject
(e.g., HTTP 401). Furthermore, we use OpenSSL to generate private keys
and x509 certificates and periodically check for their expiration time.
It would be nice to log the correct text message instead of "No error
information" when using strerror.
