Default openssh-5.4 upgrade warning for publickey users

Just a quick note for publickey-only sshd users that if you upgrade to
openssh 5.4 the AuthorizedKeysFile entry in sshd_config may need to be
updated or else you won't be able to login to your system.

If you have:
AuthorizedKeysFile .ssh/authorized_keys
(which is the default example in the config file)

change it to this:
AuthorizedKeysFile %h/.ssh/authorized_keys

and then restart sshd.

Thanks to Doktor Notor who posted the solution on bugzilla.

Whereas if you leave the 'AuthorizedKeyFile' line commented out, sshd
still works as expected and looks in ~/.ssh/authorized_keys

Thanks for the heads-up - saved me a lot of grief
