super digest is not actually acting as a full superuser

                 Key: ZOOKEEPER-904
             Project: Zookeeper
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: server
    Affects Versions: 3.3.1
            Reporter: Camille Fournier

The documentation states:
New in 3.2:  Enables a ZooKeeper ensemble administrator to access the znode 
hierarchy as a "super" user. In particular no ACL checking occurs for a user 
authenticated as super.

However, if a super user does something like:
zk.setACL("/", Ids.READ_ACL_UNSAFE, -1);

the super user is now bound by read-only ACL. This is not what I would expect 
to see given the documentation. It can be fixed by moving the chec for the 
"super" authId in PrepRequestProcessor.checkACL to before the for(ACL a : acl)
