Patch so that sshd makes use of PAM_USER

Two things off hand.

1. Your repeating the code over and over.  Make it a function call.

2. Look at openbsd's 'style' page.  As it sits now it would not be
accepted because it does not follow the correct code format.

also, one needs to check to see if this is honored by Solaris/hpux or if
this is a Linux oddity.
