Doesn't show any benefit for code removal, and the patch introduces new
dependencies on OpenSSL's ASN.1 code, e.g. the i2d_DSA_SIG() etc.

This patch is only of benefit for signature algorithms that are
supported by OpenSSL. The last two that we added (ed25519 and XMSS)
weren't, and I don't think it's likely that future signature algorithm
additions will land in OpenSSL before they land in OpenSSH either.
