     The RootOK	authentication component (pam_sm_authenticate()), always
     returns success for the superuser;	i.e., if getuid(2) returns 0.

     The following options may be passed to the	authentication module:

     debug    syslog(3)	debugging information at LOG_DEBUG level.

     no_warn  suppress warning messages	to the user.  These messages include
	      reasons why the user's authentication attempt was	declined.
