[PATCH 0/5] ZSTD compression support for OpenSSH

I added ZSTD support to OpenSSH roughly over a year and I've been
playing with it ever since.
The nice part is that ZSTD achieves reasonable compression (like zlib)
but consumes little CPU so it is unlikely that compression becomes the
bottle neck of a transfer. The compression overhead (CPU) is negligible
even when uncompressed data is tunneled over the SSH connection (SOCKS
proxy, port forward).
