So far so good. Attr and Libcap2 are added. Suid bits have been removed from 
mount, umount, chage, chfn, chsh, passwd, ping, and ping6. This leaves us 
with su, expiry, newgrp, and gpasswd, but these should be able to drop their 
suid mode too.

sha512 passwords have also been added, but there's a bug in Shadow's salt.c. 
When I use huge sha round numbers 'assert (salt_size >= MIN_SALT_SIZE && 
salt_size <= MAX_SALT_SIZE);' often fails and aborts the passwd program.
