That's not correct. libssh2_session_disconnect_ex() exists yes and it
disconnects the session SSH-wise, but it doesn't actually call close on the
socket.

The application created the socket before it handed it over to libssh2 and it
is expected to also close the socket once libssh2 has given back control of
it.
