#274: ssh agent cannot be shared between sessions

-------------------------+--------------------
 besides accessing a session for the alloc/free callbacks, only the actual
 userauth method needs a session. I propose an userauth_ex method that
 takes a session as an argument, so that a single agent connection can be
 shared if you're making many connections (think a dsh or parallel-scp
 replacement).

 for now I've worked around this by jsut overwriting the session field in
 LIBSSH2_AGENT before calling userauth, and it's working great.
