  (based patch submited by Mike Frysinger <vapier at gentoo.org>),

  function for take a fourth argument in case BSD version (patch

  Peter Vrabec <pvrabec at redhat.com>),

profided to

  - add an entry to failog, as when USE_PAM is not defined. (#53164)
  - changed pam_end to PAM_END. This is certainly was a mistake.
    pam_close_seesion + pam_end. Here, the session is still not open, we
    don't have to close it.

  -Werror (by Alexander Gattin <xrgtn at yandex.ru>),
- su: move exit() outside libmisc/shell.c::shell() for handle shell()
  on higher level (now is better visable where some programs exit with
  and 127 exit codes); added new shell() parameter (char *const envp[])
  which allow fix preserving enviloment in su on using -p, (patch by
  Alexander Gattin <xrgtn at yandex.ru>),
