Interesting timing -- FWIW, I had the exact same experience yesterday,
getting a little further with the fix to pki_key_dup, but ultimately
hit failure for an OpenSSH to validate the ECDSA signature sent back
by libssh.

My experience with ECDSA client keys so far has been good -- signature
validation seems to work for me in that path.  I'd guess this is a bug
specific to the host key paths.
