Patch for OpenSSH Portable GitHub master branch to add MaxDisplays

Please see the post at

I have attached the patch,  it is also in-lined in the e-mail.

In short, this moves a hardcoded port range limit dealing with X11
forwards to a configuration option called MaxDisplays. The mailing list
post has more details.

This is a request to have this merged in as a feature.
