Newly installed _tomcat_ package has a correct shell pointing to `/sbin/nologin`
Previously, the postinstall script set the Tomcat shell to `/bin/nologin`, which does not exist. Consequently, users failed to get a helpful message about the login access denial when attempting to log in as Tomcat user. This bug has been fixed, and the postinstall script now corectly sets the Tomcat shell to `/sbin/nologin`.
Description of problem:
Default shell for tomcat user is set as /bin/nologin. This binary is not present on RHEL machines, there is /sbin/nologin or /usr/sbin/nologin
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install tomcat (or whichever package creates the user)
2. getent passwd tomcat | cut -d: -f7
@Jan Stourac: Are we affected in JWS?
@Michal: I've just checked - JWS is safe using /sbin/nologin executable when creating a new user (both for Tomcat 7 and Tomcat 8).

Change doesn't take effect if <tomcat> user is already created by preview RPMs. There should be test if <tomcat> user exists and if so <usermod -s /sbin/nologin tomcat> should be used.
