system: remove DES password encoding
DES is long dead, it is insecure as hell, and virtually all known crypt(3) implementations now all support at least md5. Besides, the character-space of DES-encoded passwords are a sub-set of the character-space for a clear-text password, so we can't easily differentiate between the two. Since we're going to change the root password prompt to support setting encoded passwords (as well as clear-text passwords), we can't keep DES or we'd be unable to decide whether we'd need to encode the password or not. Remove DES encoding altogether (and add a legacy entry). The default is still md5, and thus there's no backward-compatibility 'select' to add. Signed-off-by: "Yann E.

+ Paswords can now only be encoded with either of md5, sha256 or sha512.
+ The default is md5, which is stronger that DES (but still pretty weak).
