The case-insensitivity patch has been accepted now so the upcoming
OpenSSH 8.0 will allow case-insensitive user and group names.

I'm still waiting for the ssh-host-config script patch to get
accepted, but if that doesn't occur in time for 8.0, I'll apply
it as local patch for the Cygwin 8.0 release.
