Hi there,

Attached is a patch we've developed for dropbear within the Yocto Project to 
avoid the need to rebuild dropbear when we wish to disable the ability to log 
into accounts that have a blank password set. It removes the compile-time 
option and adds a -B command-line option which enables the functionality.

We'd really like to see this (or something like it) upstream. If an 
alternative implementation would be preferred please let me know.
