[Pkg-shadow-devel] Bug#865762: useradd: empty shell by default (debdiff patch available)

I am attaching a debdiff patch that simply imports the upstream fix for
this regression.

This has been successfully run-tested on stretch amd64.


PS: it seems that the source git repo [1] is not longer up-to-date because
of a recent NMU change.  Thus, the attached patch is against the source
package instead of the git repo.
