[PATCH] Default behaviour of pam_access



I was caught out by the fact that pam_access defaults to allowing
access. Had I been asked what its default was, I would have said
PAM_IGNORE.

I offer this patch which leaves the default at PAM_SUCCESS but allows
the administrator to specify an alternative default as a module
option with default=[allow|ignore|deny].

I haven't patched the sysadmin's guide; I will send a patch to the
SGML if this patch is accepted.
