libssh2_trace - enable debug info from inside libssh2

#include <libssh2.h>
libssh2_trace(LIBSSH2_SESSION *session, int bitmask);

This is a function present in the library that can be used to get debug info from within libssh2 when it is running. Helpful when trying to trace or debug behaviors. Note that this function has no effect unless libssh2 was built to support tracing! It is usually disabled in release builds.

bitmask can be set to the logical OR of none, one or more of these:

Socket low-level debugging
Transport layer debugging
Key exchange debugging
Authentication debugging
Connection layer debugging
SCP debugging
SFTP debugging
Error debugging
Public Key debugging
