Bug Description

In https://cloudinit.readthedocs.io/en/latest/topics/modules.html#set-passwords, we have the sentence:

    If expire is specified and is set to false, then the password
    global config key is used as the password for all user
    accounts.

This, thankfully, is _not_ the actual behaviour; we set the given password only on the default user.

(I'm going to fix this soon, just filing a bug because it came up mid-code-review and I don't want to lose track of it.)
