[lfs-support] passwd lfs

Now that I can mount ext4, I've created the $LFS/tools directory and a
root link to it and I've created the lfs user, but now I'm getting an
error when I try to create a passwd for lfs:

root [ / ]# passwd lfs
passwd: Module is unknown
passwd: password unchanged

I can login to lfs without a passwd, and I suppose I could continue
with the build without a passwd. But I obviously have a disfunctional
system. I'll try reinstalling shadow.
