Re: (ITS#8561) ppolicy overlay and MMR delta-sync lost sync on switching to REFRESH

We have determined that our initial patch resulted in an undesirable side
effect (a race condition due to the "drop" code now being executed).

We are uploading a different patch.  In short, the modification is limited
to the replica handling in the ppolicy_modify() function in which we have
changed from the use of LDAP_MOD_DELETE to SLAP_MOD_SOFTDEL.  

If this is a potentially "dangerous" choice, then, please, let us know.
We would prefer to wait for your official modifications, but we understand
that the discussion and resolution may take a while.  We needed to address
the the constant syncrepl REFRESH of our large directory as it was causing
operational issues.   

Thank you!
