ssh.1: refer to ssh_config(5) in description of -C, -m

In most cases where ssh.1 refers to an option described in
ssh_config(5), it makes this reference explicit. See for example in
the description of -c:
"See the Ciphers keyword in ssh_config(5)".
Would it make sense to add "in ssh_config(5)" for the description of -C
and -m too? A patch that does so below.

I looked for similar cases in other man pages by searching for "see"
but I didn't find any.

Best regards,
Caspar Schutijser
