Description Jakub Jelen 2017-11-22 16:34:02 UTC
During the testing libssh with current OpenSSH 7.6 and (unable-to-turn-off) 
privilege separation, which depends on chroot(), this looks like the
simplest way to implement bogus chroot() function that will always
succeed in this testing environment.

I am not sure what would be the best approach to add this
functionality. Either into separate tool or into some of the existing
tools and trigger the functionality by some environment variable.

What do you think? Would it make sense to do something like that?
