--- Comment #1 from Damien Miller <djm at mindrot.org> ---
remote_add_provider indicates whether the user has allowed remote
ssh-agent clients to add PKCS#11 providers.

e->nsession_ids>0 indicates that a session is actually remote. A local
session will have e->nsession_ids=0.

See process_ext_session_bind() in ssh-agent.c and the corresponding
authfd.c:ssh_agent_bind_hostkey() code that is called from ssh's
