Enhancement: improve dropbear security by listening only on usb0 by default

Letting ssh listen on may be hazardous if you connect to wifi links, and seldom will you need to access dropbear from wifi unless you know what you're doing.

If you know what you're doing, you can easily change dropbear to go back to an insecure default.

A clever usage of awk in the init script will dynamically fetch usb0's address thus reducing the risk of the default.

I'm sorry if I'm not clear enough, that's a patch for /etc/init.d/dropbear

This will probably also save a tiny amount of battery by reducing the interfaces it has to poll.

Julian please take a look and maybe even move these config values to /etc/default/dropbear and mark that file as conffile.

QA is not going over these kind of bugs. netstat -ln looks sane for dropbear. thanks john and julian!
