a simple optimisation to allow FreeIPA 4.2 to work with SSSD 1.13
running as root instead of sssd user. Details in the commit message.

This also fixes a simple exception in current Fedora 22 +
mkosek/freeipa-4.2 repo because user 'sssd' does not exist.

Subject: [PATCH] oddjob: avoid chown keytab to sssd if sssd user does not

If sssd user does not exist, it means SSSD does not run as sssd user.

Currently SSSD has too tight check for keytab permissions and ownership.
It assumes the keytab has to be owned by the same user it runs under
and has to have 0600 permissions. ipa-getkeytab creates the file with
right permissions and 'root:root' ownership.

Jakub Hrozek promised to enhance SSSD keytab permissions check so that
both sssd:sssd and root:root ownership is possible and then when SSSD
switches to 'sssd' user, the former becomes the default. Since right now
SSSD 1.13 is capable to run as 'sssd' user but doesn't create 'sssd'
user in Fedora 22 / RHEL 7 environments, we can use its presence as a
version trigger.
