update to draft-ietf-curdle-ssh-kex-sha2-03 prefer groups 14, 16, 18

This updates Darren's diff to draft-ietf-curdle-ssh-kex-sha2-03,
specifically changing the hash for the group16 KEX to SHA512. This diff
also removes group 15 instead of group 18, so the groups supported are:

diffie-hellman-group14-sha256 - 2048 bit
diffie-hellman-group16-sha512 - 4096 bit
diffie-hellman-group18-sha512 - 8192 bit

IMO the powers of two are a bit cleaner than the intermediate ones. 

Finally, this tweaks the fallback group logic to choose the next larger
group a bit sooner and to consider the 8192 bit fixed group.
