Allow authentication to be passed in memory - blast from the past

Hi,

I was doing some digging to see how I could pass auth keys by memory when I
discovered this old thread from 2012 with a patch:

http://www.libssh2.org/mail/libssh2-devel-archive-2012-01/0015.shtml

I'm really interested in seeing this incorporated to libssh2, so I
decided to try to address the problems raised in the next message in
that thread:

http://www.libssh2.org/mail/libssh2-devel-archive-2012-01/0016.shtml

I created a new patch that addressed part those points. You can see it at:

https://github.com/calavera/libssh2/commit/d083300c69f41eff6132da3525722fc590e350cf.patch

I replaced the use of `memcpy_s` to use `memcpy`. I also formatted the code
to use less that 80 columns.

I ran `./configure --enable-debug` to try to address the warnings in the
code, but unfortunately I didn't get any. I'm not sure if I'm doing
anything wrong, I posted the output here:

https://gist.github.com/calavera/639002dd56753640721d

I'd really appreciate if anybody could point me to those warnings if there
is anything I'm missing.

As I said, I'm really interested in seeing this merged into libssh2.
Please, let me know if there is anything else I can help with to make that
possible.

Cheers,
David
