Re-enable ldapi code in ipa-ldap-updater and remove the searchbase

Patch is promising, ipa-ldap-updater --upgrade works just fine. The
upgrade was also correctly executed after I did the RPM upgrade.

But I have hit two issues:

1) When ipa-ldap-updater is run as a regular user on a configured IPA
server I get the following error:

$ ipa-ldap-updater
IPA is not configured on this system.

This is because regular user cannot access /var/lib/ipa/sysrestore/. I
guess we should either use another method of detecting installed IPA or
make the script root-only (as we do with other scripts taking advantage
of fstore).

2) I get stacktrace when I run ipa-ldap-updater with --ldapi:

$ sudo ipa-ldap-updater --ldapi
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/ipa-ldap-updater", line 125, in<module>

raise errors.NotFound(reason=notfound(args))
ipalib.errors.NotFound: * not found

I know that --ldapi did not work before the patch either, it just
crashed with another stacktrace. But it would be nice to fix this one.


Issues addressed.

I'm going to do a best-possible check for IPA Installation when non-root
but stick with the fstore when doing it as root. This is because it is
more important because it may be done automatically in rpm.


fixed a couple more issues Martin discovered:

- catch errors if the GSSAPI connection fails
- do console logging when doing a password-based update as root


ACK. Good job, everything works fine.
