    Add OpenSSH updating note to 12.4 errata page
    When updating from an earlier FreeBSD release (with an older OpenSSH
    version) to 12.4 sshd may not accecpt new connections until it is
    restarted.  Add a note to this effect, similar to 13.1.
    This renders slightly strangely but I haven't been able to find out
    why, so commit as is and we can tidy up later.

+If upgrading from an earlier version of FreeBSD, sshd (from OpenSSH 9.1p1) will not accept new connections until it is restarted.
+After installing the new userland, either reboot (as specified in the source update procedure), or execute `service sshd restart`.
