FS#3911 - Consider changing /etc/shadow's default password hashing algorithm

Currently the default algorithm used for storing passwords in /etc/shadow is md5crypt.
For security reasons this should be changed to a more suitable algorithm.
The present passwd implementation in busybox supports sha256crypt as well as sha512crypt.

This would require a simple patch at

MUSL_DISABLE_CRYPT_SIZE_HACK should also be set for boards where this would be feasible to implement.
