           Summary: Comply with change date when updating password
           Product: Busybox
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All

patch to fix this bug

When the function update_passwd is called on a system with a date set to 1st
1970 (like some embedded devices), the change date is set to 0, which has a
special meaning:
"The value 0 has a special meaning, which is that the user should change her
password the next time she will log in the system."

The attached patch fixes, this behaviour by setting the change date to -1 if
called on 1st Jan 1970.
