Start alternate sshd before user has to agree to start the install

Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

I'm doing a test server upgrade and got the usual warning about upgrading via ssh. I wanted to log into the alternate sshd before I said yes as once before I'd had trouble with using the alternate due to firewall issues. Logging into the alternate sshd before accepting the upgrade would be a lot more comfortable. As it is, it feels a bit like stepping off a cliff.

This works for me now with the upload of 0.147.5, it tells me about ssh and that it will start a alternative one. When I said "y" the alterntiave sshd is started and ready and I was able to login. At this point the upgrader was sitting and waiting at the final confirmation prompt (i.e. the upgrade itself has not started had). The only UI problem is that the messages scroll by pretty quickly. Maybe its best to just add a additional confirmation or something (but that would require a string freeze exception).
