(ITS#8805) Documentation for LDAP_OPT_X_TLS_NEWCTX is wrong

The documentation for ldap_set_option LDAP_OPT_X_TLS_NEWCTX is wrong or at least
misleading. The man page https://linux.die.net/man/3/ldap_set_option describes
the option as:

> Instructs the library to create a new TLS library context. invalue must be
const int *. A non-zero value pointed to by invalue tells the library to create
a context for a server.

However tls2 creates a new context for any non-NULL argument, even for
ldap_set_option(l, LDAP_OPT_X_TLS_NEWCTX, 0). See
