make sure the cached group information belongs to the current UID

Originally filled in Red Hat bugzilla, which provides also whole
reproducer and analysis (credits to Renaud Métrich):


In short, the AuthorizedKeysCommandUser code caches group list, which
is then used also for fetching the authorized keys itself, which
obviously does not work if the groups used do not overlap.

The same issue will probably exist with
AuthorizedPrincipalsCommandUser, but I do not have a reproduce for

The correct solution should checking that the cached information about
groups is for the same UID we have in pw parameter. My proposed
solution is in the attachment.
