It just occured that perhaps /var/empty did not exist the first time
ssh-host-config was run and thus the chown failed, and it was only
created when the sshd tried to start and failed. If that's the case
then simply having ssh-host-config ensure that the directory exists
before setting ownership seems like the right thing.
