I create an unconnected session (libssh2_session_init) that I use only
for the libssh2_knownhosts_* calls. It means I don't have to keep
track of quite so many session pointers. The only reason knownhost
takes a session is to report the last error so you can retrieve it
later. There's no reason it has to be the same session you connect
