Does ipa-client-install  bring admin utils?
What is its purpose?
I though the sequence of operations would be somewhat (do not look at
the names, I do not expect them to be exactly as I put them):
yum install ipa-client-enrollment
ipa-enroll ...

The enroll will also do some configuration as it used to do in v1 but
other than that I expected  the mentioned sequence.
I scanned quickly through the patch but was not able to see whether
things work as I expect or not.
