Re: (ITS#4092) PATCH: back-shell additional connection information

I note that patch does not contain a IPR statement as required
by our contributing guidelines.  Please add an appropriate
statement to the top of the patch file.  See <http://www.openldap.org/devel/contributing.html>
for details.

The changes would likely break some existing uses of back-shell.
I think it would be good to only send additional fields when
configured to do so.  I would suggest adding an extensible
configuration option so that if someone else desires to further
extend back-shell with additional fields, they can share the
same configuration mechanism.  Something like:

  extensions binddn peername ssf

would do.
