(ITS#6627) Empty suffix and dn for root node should be avoided

Currently it is possible to create a DIT with empty suffix and empty dn for root
node! Side-note: Such DIT can be used for redirection.
I've no idea what LDAP standards state, but common sense tells me that name-less
node doesn't make sense. It's as meaningless as creating a name-less directory
or name-less file.
So, when such incorrect parameters are supplied in the conf file, OpenLDAP
service should not start and should exit with error.
