yescript replaces sha512 for password hashing


The default password hashing algorithm has been changed in Debian (and thus Ubuntu) with the Bullseye release. pam_unix has changed to using yescrypt instead of sha512.

This went pretty fast. The change in pam went into unstable February and it landed in testing in time for the release of Bullseye in August and thus becoming stable:
