Subject: "SSH private keys cracker" patch for JtR [first cut for GSoC]

I have re-based my patch on top of john-1.7.7-jumbo-1 and also have
cleaned up john.c, loader.c as suggested by magnum. New patch attached
and uploaded to the wiki.

No, I don't need the Proc-Type field. I need to think about this idea more. :-)

Thanks again magnum for your review.
