Description

SunSSH borks if you have TCPKeepAlive yes in your ~/.ssh/config:

[root@09f501c8-a9e6-11e1-bf82-2b368af2a8d7:~]$ head -1 ~/.ssh/config
TCPKeepAlive yes
[root@09f501c8-a9e6-11e1-bf82-2b368af2a8d7:~]$ ssh 10.2.0.176
/root/.ssh/config: line 1: unknown configuration option: TCPKeepAlive
terminating, 1 bad configuration option(s)

This unfortunately hampers sharing the configuration file between machines.

SunSSH calls this KeepAlive. It would be nice if it used the same name as the current OpenSSH. Obviously dropping support for KeepAlive isn't an option, however, TCPKeepAlive could also be supported as a synonym.

NB: This RFE mirrors Joyent OS-1282.
