Aha... now it works correctly (but Busybox is twice the size...)

On my development machine:
$ make clean
$ export CONFIG_DEBUG=y
$ make V=1
(The lines now say "-O0" instead of "-Os")
$ make install CONFIG_PREFIX=$ROOTFS
(To get it on the arm9)

Busyboc has grown from 699664 bytes to 1166624 bytes.

~# cat /etc/passwd | grep -E ^root
~# passwd -d root
Password for root changed by root
~# cat /etc/passwd | grep -E ^root

Other tests correctly changes the password and shadow file.

So it seems to be an optimizer issued...

I'll now built the "libbb/update_passwd.s" file and attach it to the next
message as suggested by Denys.
