Check for SSHFP when certificate is offered.

When the sshd offers a certificate to client (which is default, when
such a certificate is configured), the client refuses to do a SSHFP
validation for the key embedded in the certificate.

This patch fixes this by dropping certificate for the purpose of
checking SSHFP records, yet retaining certificate for other checks if
SSHFP authentication fails. It is therefore possible to fall back to
certificate authentication when for instance client does not have a
DNSSEC-enabled connectivity.
