Bug#985950: network-console: Should tell user to disable public key auth when having too many ssh private keys

Package: network-console
Severity: normal
Tags: d-i


I had trouble connecting to the installer because my ssh client was trying to authenticate using all of my ssh private keys before password auth.
As i had too many keys, this lead to a "Too many authentication failures" message followed by a disconnection.

network-console module should indicate to be careful of this and use -o PubkeyAuthentication=no.
