Please help to review these 2 patches. They're adding the feature of
changing passwords in the UI(attached the screenshot) and works properly
with common authentication mode and LDAP mode. This new feature is
configurable and can be easily disabled by the user who does not want it.

They look good to me. so I have imported them into git master tree.

I just wonder, if we really want to have an option to dis-allow the password
change of the users. Is there a real use case, where this should not be
allowed ?

In case of LDAP, this use-case might become valid as a lot of LDAP based
infrastructures are using AD or any other directory where changing password
must be done elsewhere.

With best regards,
