patch to use --not-running-from-cron

Use the --not-running-from-cron flag to freebsd-update.

This means that in the case that the case of rc scripts running without a
terminal, the script still doe the right thing.

rc scripts running without a terminal is a different bug, probably, but it is
probably better to be robust in the face of them.  Especially as t4g.nano
instances are an example of h/w with that bug running when running
13.0-RELEASE.

This will, however, break freebsd-update for FreeBSD 10.1 and earlier; the
--not-running-from-cron flag is present in 10.2 and 11.0 and later.
