I added support for aes192-ctr and aes192-cbc.

I tested the paramiko client against openssh server after setting "Ciphers aes192-ctr" and "aes192-cbc" respectively in sshd_config. Client connected fine, and confirmed the channel was indeed using aes192-ctr. Could execute command and transfer files.

Tested paramiko server by running the and then using the openssh client to connect to it, with option "-c aes192-ctr" or "-c aes192-cbc" respectively.


Neat, thanks! Mildly surprised nobody bothered adding this earlier when it's as simple as tweaking key size. (Similar to how adding SHA-2 512bit support was a couple lines on top of the work for SHA-2 256.)

Had to manually apply, the changes for SHA-2 reformatted a bunch of the relevant lines. Made sure to credit in changelog. Thanks again!
