ecryptfs-migrate-home with ldap users: nopwcheck necessary

Bug Description

The password check of ecryptfs-setup-private fails for ldap/sssd users.
ecryptfs-setup-private implements the "--nopwcheck" option for this reason.

This option is not available for ecryptfs-migrate-home, which makes it impossible to use ecryptfs to encrypt the home directories of domain users.

ecryptfs-migrate-home is a wrapper for ecryptfs-setup-private, but the "--nopwcheck" option cannot be used.
If the option is added to the call of ecryptfs-setup-private, ecryptfs-migrate-home can easily be used for ldap users.

Is there any reason why the option should not be implemented for ecryptfs-migrate-home?

Thanks for fixing, seems work, but not available in most of Linux repositories. Does this patch included in last release of ecryptfs-utils?
