Thanks for the details. I am able to test the host limitation based on
the host from where the connection request is given.This patch
provides the advantage of getting the connected host address
details for the PAM modules to provide/restrict the authentication.

A small change in the code, correct the following code from

+ if (retval) {


if (retval)

as per the code everywhere.

I am also not a good English speaker :), but we can try to provide to
as good as possible, later community can help in correcting it if they find
any problem/improvement.
