#276: do not fail when keys of unknown type are read from known_hosts file

Comment (by salva):

 I have submitted two new patches, one for every one of your observations.

 The first one keeps the length of the key-type and uses it. Actually I
 have found that the host and comment slots are affected by the same issue,
 so I have also modified the code related to those, keeping their lengths
 in the known_host struct, and using memcpy to move then into the buffer
 instead of snprintf(..., "%s", ...) which stops at nulls.

 Regarding the usage of "goto", well, I don't see it as inappropriate in
 that case, but it is your code and so your choice. The second patch
 replaces the jumps by calls to _libssh2_error.
