Note that advertisement implies on that the server (as a whole)
recognizes (implements) the control.  It does not imply that
any particular operation which makes use of that control is
serviceable.  There seems to a bug in OpenLDAP in that it
is returning unavailableCriticalExtension for a recognized
control used in an appropriate manner.  Instead a service
error (such as unwillingToPerform) should be returned.
