Generate host keys using default key size

While the default size for RSA (and RSA1) keys generated by ssh-keygen
was changed to 2048 bits, some of the sample startup scripts explicitly
generate 1024 bit keys. The use of '-b 1024' in these scripts seems
unnecessary and undesirable.

A trivial patch to fix contrib/caldera/ssh-host-keygen and
contrib/suse/rc.sshd is attached.
