Unsetting the root password

Due to changes in the filesystem package [1] the current /etc/passwd
does not allow login without an empty root password anymore.
This becomes apparent, when switching to another TTY than the one
autologin is activated for.

By running passwd -d root we unset the password.
In the future this should go to a custom /etc/passwd file.
