upstream commit
UpdateHostKeys fixes: I accidentally changed the format of the messages last week without changing the extension name, and this has been causing connection failures for people who are running -current. First reported by sthen@ s/ Change the name of the proof message too, and reorder it a little. Also, UpdateHostKeys=ask is incompatible with ControlPersist (no TTY available to read the response) so disable UpdateHostKeys if it is in ask mode and ControlPersist is active (and document this)
