Currently the clients will just exit if you give them anything bad in
HostKeyAlgorithms. This can be annoying for calling code though as you
might not know which algorithms this particular instance of ssh

Instead I propose simply filtering out unsupported algorithms and
proceeding with what's left. Attached patch does just that.
