Patch which fixes the zero length banner problem.

ssh fails with xmalloc: zero size when connecting to a server with
present but empty banner.

Also the processing of the received banner through strnvis() is
unfortunate in the regard that it mangles banners with international
characters. The processing should be done according to the current
locale and allow the international characters to be printed unmangled.
