            Bug ID: 2868
           Summary: Vague error/debug message in src/usr.bin/ssh/key.c
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 7.4p1
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: ssh
          Assignee: unassigned-bugs at mindrot.org
          Reporter: scott_fields at me.com

There are several key load functions that all simply report the
following in src/usr.bin/ssh/key.c:

debug("%s: %s", __func__, ssh_err(r));


error("%s: %s", __func__, ssh_err(r));

That's very vague, especially for an error message.

I'm specifically referring to the following functions.


Unless there is a reason to not include this, I would find it very
desirable to at least include the file that has the exception being
reported in the debug or error message.
