Bug#149452: libc6: OpenBSD's bcrypt password hashing support

Adding crypt blowfish would improve interopability (e.g. for NIS). So 
far there has been md5 crypt as common algorithm that is supported by 
most platforms, but that is now considered insecure and it has been 
removed from some platforms.

So, there is for example no password algorithm that is supported by 
both openbsd and Debian.
