[Bug 177698] [libutil] [patch] sshd sets the user's MAC label at the same time it attempts to set the login class, which can cause the latter to fail if mac_biba is used.

Here's a new patch for login_class.c. As far as I can tell there is no
reason to require that a passwd entry be specified in order to set the MAC
label; therefore, I removed that requirement. Additionally, the current
implementation silently fails to set the MAC label when the pwd argument is
NULL, and silent failure when it comes to security isn't a good thing.
While not directly related to the original problem, it's related to the
underlying issue, which is that the handling of MAC labels in
setusercontext has several bugs in need of fixing.
