Passwordless user shouldn't prevent public/private key login.

I'm using the attached horrible patch to allow users with no password to
log in via public/private key.  (Note there's a _separate_ test in the
actual password mechanism that vetos logins that way.)

This lets me switch systems from telnet to dropbear even when /etc is on
a read only filesystem.
