Is there an OpenSSH command line tool, or a switch to ssh or ssh-keyscan
which verifies the requested server's host key against the public key
saved in known_hosts, and returns with an appropriate return value? That
is, e.g. a command-line switch to ssh which prevents it from trying to
log in, and causes it to exit after the host key check.
