CVS commit: src/crypto/external/bsd/openssh/dist

Module Name:    src
Committed By:   tls
Date:           Fri Apr 27 15:45:37 UTC 2012

Modified Files:
        src/crypto/external/bsd/openssh/dist: readconf.c readconf.h

Log Message:
Add new "SendVersionFirst" option to OpenSSH client.  This option makes
the client send its version string first if it is configured to speak
v2 only (the old hack of waiting to see the server version is only
really useful if you might be speaking v1 to some servers).  The option
is on by default but can be disabled from the config file.

This aligns the OpenSSH client behavior with most other implementations
and eliminates a major source of connection delays and failures when
speaking SSH through particularly stupid proxies, of which, sadly, there
are many.

This change has also been submitted to OpenSSH as their bug #1999.
