After testing, it was determined that the 389DS patch #47653 does in
fact permit addition if any of the multi-valued attributes match the
condition. This is definitely problematic.

After discussion today with nkinder, simo, nhosoi, we agreed to
roll-back patch #47653 and find an alternate approach. This also
invalidates patch freeipa-npmccallum-0032. Simo will follow up this
email with an alternate proposal.
