(ITS#4741) ppolicy.c improperly discards return value of check_password() function

In servers/slapd/overlays/ppolicy.c, check_password_quality function, at
line 530, the value of the 'ok' variable is discarded by unconditionally
assigning it the value LDAP_SUCCESS.
The variable is the return code of the user-defined check_password() function,
which is assigned at line 522. The next if-then-else block is checking to
see if the module reported an error, at which point 'ok' would be assigned
LDAP_OTHER regardless of what check_password() returned. A superfluous else
block appears after this check, assigning 'ok' to LDAP_SUCCESS.
It works fine for me if I remove the else block.
