(ITS#5861) Assert control on Add request fails
Full_Name: Hallvard B Furuseth
Submission from: (NULL) (188.8.131.52)
Submitted by: hallvard
RFC 4528 says the Assert control is appropriate for Add. Slapd disagrees:
$ ldapadd -xhlocalhost:3890 -e\!assert='(objectClass=organization)' <test.ldif
adding new entry "o=test"
ldap_add: Critical extension is unavailable (12)
additional info: critical extension is unavailable
back-bdb and back-sql do not apply the assert control to Add.
The message comes from slapd/controls.c. Don't fix that before fixing
Add in the backends, otherwise critical controls can be ignored.
Another strangeness: overlays/syncprov.c applies the Assert control to
Compare but not other operations. I don't know why, there are no
comments about it.
