ssh: invert algorithm choices on the server

At the protocol level, SSH lets client and server specify different
algorithms for the read and write half of the connection. This has
never worked correctly, as Client-to-Server was always interpreted as
the "write" side, even if we were the server.

This has never been a problem because, apparently, there are no
clients that insist on different algorithm choices running against Go
SSH servers.

Since the SSH package does not expose a mechanism to specify
algorithms for read/write separately, there is end-to-end for this
change, so add a unittest instead.
