banner_message utf-8 support


This bug report is with reference to the discussion in the following

Logging the defect with fix for consideration.

The banner message displayed on the screen contain octal values 
instead of korean chars. Prior to ssh 5.1 the banner message would 
display the charaters properly. 
I understand that starting from 5.1 the message is passed through 
strnvis() function. 
I looked into documentation on strnvis and found that it does not 
support multibyte chars and doesnt work well with international chars.
