patch to pick up more useful ssh login failure data from auth.log

I regularly get this kind of mail from the daily security run on public-facing machines:

Apr 26 15:29:09 ria sshd[33415]: Disconnecting: Too many authentication failures [preauth]

Not very helpful.  I should be seeing this:

Even better would be:

A minor change (attached) will at least get the lines that are useful (and also the cruft but I can live with that), and I don't believe it will muck up the recognition of other login failures.
