Seems to work. Tested it with Solaris 2.6 and 9.

ssh-keygen still segfaults in
It works for ssh-ed25519 but the other types segfault.

ssh-keygen -p failed for ssh-rsa-key
ssh-keygen -p failed for ssh-dss-key
ssh-keygen -p failed for ecdsa-sha2-nistp256-key
ssh-keygen -p failed for ecdsa-sha2-nistp384-key
ssh-keygen -p failed for ecdsa-sha2-nistp521-key

They key seems to be fine though, ssh-keygen from 6.7p1 has no problems 
with it:
$ ssh-keygen -p -P secret1 -N 2secret -f /tmp/sshkey
Key has comment 'rsa w/o comment'
Your identification has been saved with the new passphrase.
