Global modules and cn=config

Unfortunately, the current cn=config design makes it essentially impossible to use global modules. For example, the pw-sha2 global module for adding addtional hashing schemes cannot be used with cn=config. This is because the olcPasswordHash value is loaded up when cn=config is bootstrapped, prior to loading the global module. This means that the value fails sanity checking, and slapd aborts. See also ITS#7802.

Ideas on how to address this chicken and egg issue welcome. ;)
