SASL, slapd internal searches

A little while back I committed some changes to the sasl/saslauthz code to
make sure that it enforced ACLs on all the internal searches it performs. I
think some of these changes are wrong/unnecessary. Really, the point of an
ACL is to control what an external user can see/touch. When slapd is
performing a search to map an authID to a DN, I think this should be treated
as a root-privileged operation, ignoring access controls. Aside from the DN
itself, nothing about the entry is ever exposed to any external user.
