sssd should emit warnings if there are problems with /etc/krb5.keytab file

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #591677 +++
Description of problem:
I think that when sssd searches for krb5.keytab, and doesn't find it,
for whatever reason can not read it, or can not find appropriate data
(exact host principal) it should at least emit some warning.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Any error in keytab file, including if it's missing, will trigger this behavior.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure sssd to use FreeIPA as authentication server, but remove keytab file
2. Start sssd, it doesn't report any problems with keytab.
sssd doesn't work correcty and there is no indication why.
There should be indication in syslog.
