First, please follow the existing source code indentation style we use.

Then, I really don't like having the same code chunk pasted twice into that
sftp_packet_require() function and it seems odd to put that kind of specific
logic into the generic requrie function.

Isn't it rather so that the funtion that calls sftp_packet_require() in this
case should rather ask for one of SSH_FXP_EXTENDED_REPLY _or_ SSH_FXP_STATUS ?
That's what the sftp_packet_requirev() function is for already!
