[strongSwan] PKCS#10 file format with "ipsec pki -req"

Yeah, the synopsis is truly misleading. In all functions we support
input either in der or pem format, irrespectively of the actual file
suffix but currently we can output only binary DER format. We just
lack the time to implement the DER-to-PEM converter.

Best regards
