KEYS: asymmetric: enforce SM2 signature use pkey algo

The signature verification of SM2 needs to add the Za value and
recalculate sig->digest, which requires the detection of the pkey_algo
in public_key_verify_signature(). As Eric Biggers said, the pkey_algo
field in sig is attacker-controlled and should be use pkey->pkey_algo
instead of sig->pkey_algo, and secondly, if sig->pkey_algo is NULL, it
will also cause signature verification failure.

The software_key_determine_akcipher() already forces the algorithms
are matched, so the SM3 algorithm is enforced in the SM2 signature,
although this has been checked, we still avoid using any algorithm
information in the signature as input.
