RFC: SSH Agent forwarding pull request

Hello all,
I am keen to get SSH agent forwarding implemented in libssh2 - it is the last remaining major feature of SSH that is not yet supported by libssh2.
There is a PR pending to add this functionality, based on Mr Mashimoto's patches to this list from a while back with fixes and tests.
Is anyone available to review that PR? One thing I have not tested is forwarding with a non-OpenSSH server. The integration tests do not cover this as they use OpenSSH.
The code is supposed to fall back to the standard SSH request for forwarding if the OpenSSH specific method does not work - this matches what the OpenSSH client does.
Thank you,
