Secondly it seems so that Cyrus SASL code does not support SSF larger

Also wrong, Cyrus SASL/GSSAPI is known to work with up to ssf=112.

Hm, I thought for the GSSAPI mech, it was hard coded to 56.  I've certainly
not seen it higher even with newer enc types that were at much higher
encryption levels.

Read TF code.

/* Heimdal and MIT use the following */
#define K5_MAX_SSF  112
