   Now pam_nologin(8) will provide an account management function
   instead of an authentication function.  There are a design reason
   and a practical reason for that.  First, the module belongs in
   account management because it checks availability of the account
   and does no authentication.  Second, there are existing and potential
   PAM consumers that skip PAM authentication for good or for bad.
   E.g., sshd(8) just prefers internal routines for public key auth;
   OTOH, cron(8) and atrun(8) do implicit authentication when running
   a job on behalf of its owner, so their inability to use PAM auth
   is fundamental, but they can benefit from PAM account management.
   Document this change in the manpage.
   Modify /etc/pam.d files accordingly, so that is listed
   under the "account" function class.
   Bump __FreeBSD_version (mostly for ports, as this change should be
   invisible to C code outside pam_nologin.)
