Re: Public key authentication, *.pub file

Hi Andreas,

I just checked on this. I made 3 patches for this feature. All of them
applied on master, but only one applied on 0.4.

Patch#1: privatekey_from_file() supports unknown keytype. Applied on
both master and 0.4

Patch#2: ssh_userauth_pubkey() supports only passing in private key,
with NULL pubkey. Applied on master.

Patch#3: Add new API ssh_userauth_privatekey_file(), which auto check
the existence of .pub file. Applied on master.

I also check ssh_userauth_autopubkey(), and it still checks for .pub
file, read it and pass to ssh_userauth_pubkey(). So
ssh_userauth_autopubkey is something we missed and needs to be changed.
Since we already have patch#2 and #3, it should be easy to change
ssh_userauth_autopubkey to use ssh_userauth_privatekey_file directly.
