     [PROTOCOL ssh.c serverloop.c]
     Add a no-more-sessions@openssh.com global request extension that the
     client sends when it knows that it will never request another session
     (i.e. when session multiplexing is disabled). This allows a server to
     disallow further session requests and terminate the session.
     Why would a non-multiplexing client ever issue additional session
     requests? It could have been attacked with something like SSH'jack:

4. sftp: Reversal of arguments to SSH_FXP_SYMLINK
4. connection: disallow additional sessions extension
"no-more-sessions@openssh.com"
Most SSH connections will only ever request a single session, but a
attacker may abuse a running ssh client to surreptitiously open
additional sessions under their control. OpenSSH provides a global
request "no-more-sessions@openssh.com" to mitigate this attack.
When an OpenSSH client expects that it will never open another session
(i.e. it has been started with connection multiplexing disabled), it
will send the following global request:
byte SSH_MSG_GLOBAL_REQUEST
string "no-more-sessions@openssh.com"
char want-reply
On receipt of such a message, an OpenSSH server will refuse to open
future channels of type "session" and instead immediately abort the
connection.
Note that this is not a general defence against compromised clients
(that is impossible), but it thwarts a simple attack.
