fix rekey/clientalive interaction

This fixes the rekey/clientalive interaction, though a little

It will work correctly if clientalivetimeout is less than the timed
rekeylimit, but will send extra client alive pings if the rekeylimit
timeout is smaller. In practice, I don't think this is a huge problem
since rekey timeouts are likely to be long and extra client alive
packets are quite harmless.

Fixing it properly would require a more comprehensive timekeeping
system to separately manage the rekey and client-alive deadlines.
