[PATCH] Allow matching HostName against Host entries

You would probably meant something along the lines of:
MatchHostName no # override for "host foo"
SomeOtherSetting "used for 'foo.bar.com', but not used for 'foo'"
MatchHostName no # global setting
in your user config, which would make sure that none of your Host
stanzas match a global config in case your sysadmin decides to turn
the flag on. Of course, if you're depending on you sysadmin's global
config for things, and he changes it to require matchhostname, then
you're equally in trouble. But again, anything your sysadmin does can
break your own configs or worse.
