[libvirt] [PATCH 0/2] Fix authentication with passwords in libssh2 connection driver

When keyboard interactive authentication is disabled on the remote host
the usual way is to request a password and authenticate using tunneled
password authentication. Libvirt's libssh2 driver didn't have this fallback and
connections to such hosts failed.

Peter Krempa (2):
  util: Add possibility to call virAuthGetPassword without conn object
  libssh2_transport: Add fallback authentication method for password
