This commit should be broken up. First, it should add the unmodified
useradd.bbclass from upstream, and indicate the upstream commit it was
pulled from. Then it should patch shadow-native, then it should modify
useradd.bbclass to use it. Splitting up the pristine bbclass from the
modifications makes it much easier to update to newer versions of the class
later on.
