    ssh: update sshd_config for prohibit-password option

    The PermitRootLogin option "prohibit-password" was added as a synonym
    for "without-password" in 2015.  Then in 2017 these were swapped:
    "prohibit-password" became the canonical option and "without-password"
    became a deprecated synonym (in OpenSSH commit 071325f458).

    The UsePAM description in sshd_config still mentioned
    "without-password."  Update it to match the new canonical option.
