Log Message:
global limits can also be set in "cn=config" (more forITS#6428)

While working on this, I learned that the global limits can either be set
in the "cn=config" entry or in "olcDatabase=frontend,cn=config". Is there
a special reason for this?

This seems also to be the case for some other attributes: olcSecurity,
olcRestricted, olcRequires. Just to name a few.

Just for backward compatibility. These options were always documented as "global" but in fact are not, they are only valid for databases.

Originally, these attributes were write-only in cn=config - they would only be returned in the frontendDB entry. That seems to be broken now...
