Description of problem:
ldap service failt to start everytime due bug in init script.
slaptest program is called without mandatory option "-u"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:

2. service ldap start
Actual Results: ]# service ldap start
Checking configuration files for : slap_startup failed (test would succeed using the -u switch)
Expected Results: Service should start up.
Created attachment 113998 [details]
needed option added
This patch adds needed option "-u" to slaptest.
The -u flag is not mandatory -- what "slaptest -u" does is run the test in
read-only mode, so that failures to obtain read-write locks on the directory
database doesn't signal an error. The thing is that if your directory server
can't obtain a lock on its database, then that's a symptom of a problem which
needs human intervention.
Apparently it also errors out if you don't already have a database, which I'd
have missed due to assuming that the database is created with 'slapadd' first.
Fixing in 2.2.23-5 and later. Please reopen this bug ID if you find that this
doesn't solve the problem.
