It comments some braindead checks that I don't even remember what were
there for, that prevent reloading a valid configuration from cn=config. 
Consider that back-config support in back-ldap was added during the
development of back-config itself, so some odd configuration cases that
worked at that time might no longer be valid now.

The configuration should be fine; even the contents of the configuration
database (back-config) should be valid.  After applying the patch, slapd
should restart fine, loading slapo-chain(5) as it is configured now.
