ec2-instance-connect: Configures ssh daemon to accept EC2 Instance Connect ssh keys

 EC2 Instance Connect is a service that publishes ssh keys for use by EC2
 instances based on AWS Credentials. These keys are consumed by on-instance
 configuration provided by this package. The ssh daemon will query EC2
 Instance Metadata service for user-keys at ssh calltime, validate any if
 present as well as validating their signature, and if all checks pass return
 will include them in the authorized keys list.
 In addition, there is an agent that harvests instance ssh host keys and
 passes them back to the service. This is for authentication purposes by
 the EC2 console to open an in-browser ssh terminal connection.
