(In reply to Simon Josefsson from comment #22)

OpenSSH is BSD, so GPL-vs-LGPL is kind of splitting hairs.  pretty sure
"GPL library" was referring to the overall GPL family rather than the
GPL subclass (e.g. GPL-2 & GPL-3).

openssh does support building/linking against readline which is GPL-2,
but in that case there is a BSD replacement available (libedit). 
they're API compatible, but that's because libedit implemented the
readline API (with readline being 15 years old before libedit showed
up).  at least in most Linux distros, we are linking openssh against

so i'm not sure optional support for libu2f is a problem ?  it seems a
disservice to block support because no one has stepped up to implement
a comparable BSD-compatible library.
