Re: (ITS#6035) slapd requires restart after modifying olcAuthzRegexp


Following up from 

This limitation seems to still exist (tried RE24 and master).

Until it can be fixed, please document it clearly in slapd-config.5 (and maybe 
the admin guide too), as well as any related attrs if they also require a 
restart (olcAuthzPolicy?). It's surprising behaviour, since almost every other 
attribute does support online configuration. Proposed patch follows.
