(ITS#7280) accesslog write to subentry of log database

This is a feature request (mostly).

Currently the accesslog overlay is only capable of writing to the base DN of a
log database, and not a subentry of that database. Specifying the DN to a
specific subentry for the "logdb" parameter ends up writing to the base DN of
the database instead.

The main reason for this is so that multiple accesslog overlays can write to the
same backend database, and not have to create a separate database for each
overlay. Currently if you try to give multiple accesslog overlays the same
database, it causes deadlock issues (or it appears to be a deadlock) and write
operations end up hanging. I'm not sure if this should be considered a bug, or
just noted as "don't try and do that".
