[PC-BSD Testing] Kernel Panic on Wireless + shutdown

Denyhosts only needs to be running when ssh is, since it just guards against bruteforce ssh attempts. We could set it up to be enabled only when ssh is. That would be too difficult.

SSH could be disabled by default and with it, Denyhosts. I would think power
users make use of the SSH functionality whereas average joe/jane user
wouldn't. Is there any downside to not having Denyhosts running?

my 2 cents.
