I am one of the maintainers of the patch. The current release is not  
suitable for merging as it is too invasive. We are working on writing  
a cleaner version, and I have emailed enabling patches to the list  
before, but it seems of limited interested to the OpenSSH developers.  
Our attempts to take small easily reviewable steps on our way to a  
cleaner implementation have been met with, well, no reaction what so  
ever :/

See: and  
more recently: 

The latter bug is now four months old, no reply yet.

So, I wouldn't hold out much hope.
