+pam_permit — The promiscuous module
+pam_permit is a PAM module that always permit access. It does nothing else.
+In the case of authentication, the user's name will be set to nobody if the
+application didn't set one. Many applications and PAM modules become confused
+if this name is unknown.
+This module is very dangerous. It should be used with extreme caution.
+This module does not recognice any options.
+Add this line to your other login entries to disable account management, but
+continue to permit users to log in.

-this module always returns PAM_SUCCESS, it ignores all options.
