sshd Failing New Inbound Connections

I managed to lock myself out of my firewall today.

I disabled inet6 resolution by removing it from the `family` option in 
resolve.conf(5). After a while I noticed I couldn't make new inbound
connections using either ipv4 or ipv6. My client kept reporting:

"kex_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host"

On the server I found the following errors in /var/log/authlog:

"fatal: bad addr or host: ::1 (no address associated with name)"

Totally my fault for changing resolv.conf without enough thought, but 
perhaps sshd could disable the listener in such cases.

Client Details:

MacOS 12.3
OpenSSH_8.6p1, LibreSSL 3.3.5

Server Details:

OpenBSD 7.0 GENERIC.MP#5 amd64
OpenSSH_8.8, LibreSSL 3.4.1
