That looks fine to me.

SSPI does not complain with sslmode=prefer as each time
pg_SSPI_startup() is called conn->sspictx is enforced to NULL. This
looks wrong to me by the way as pg_SSPI_startup() is invoked only once
per authentication, and it leaks memory this way. That's also
inconsistent with SASL and GSS. At the same time this inconsistency is
not causing actual problems except a leak with SSPI in libpq, so not
doing anything except on HEAD looks fine to me.
