(ITS#3849) support for posixGroup use in ACLs

It can be useful to use a posixGroup in the RFC 2407 style from an access
directive when running on a Unix platform that uses shortnames to determine
group membership. For example:

access to attr=apple-user-picture 
  by self write
  by sockurl="ldapi://%2Fvar%2Frun%2Fldapi" write 
  by group/posixGroup/memberUid="cn=admin,cn=groups,dc=example,dc=com" write
  by * read

I've prepared a patch against HEAD which allows this to work. This was ported
from a change against OpenLDAP 2.2.19.
