NACK, this patch introduces a bug when trying to add the same host
multiple time with different ip address.
The second time the ipa host-ad will correctly return an error that the
host already exist yet the A record with the new address is added in
DNS. Adding records to the DNS should happen only after the host has
been successfully created.
