Patches to OpenSSH and OpenSSH portable to remove hmac-sha2-*-96 MACs

draft-dbider-sha2-mac-for-ssh-06.txt (soon to be RFC 6668) does not
include the hmac-sha2-256-96 and hmac-sha2-512-96 variants. The IESG
felt they were not appropriate.

As they are not registered names, it is neeful to either remove them,
or add @openssh.com to them. I suggest removal is the better way to go.

See also http://www.iana.org/assignments/ssh-parameters for the
officially registered MAC Algorithm Names.
