Source file sshconnect2.c contains the definition of structure
AuthctxtV2.  Field "success" in this structure is declared as type

In function ssh_userauth2(), authctxt.success is passed to
dispatch_run() as the second argument.  

dispatch_run() is declared in dispatch.c with a second parameter of
type sig_atomic_t.

On some OS's (i.e. VxWorks) "sig_atomic_t" is declared as "unsigned
char".  Where the system is also big-endian, the size mismatch between
"sig_atomic_t" as "unsigned char" and "authctxt.success" as "int"
causes the data to be written to / read from different bytes.
