Title: #5071: 389-DS BDB: switch deadlock behavior to DB_LOCK_MINWRITE
Some IPA updates are expensive in term of processing and #page hit.
The likelihood to generate a DS Berkeley DB database deadlock can be high
for some common operations.
When a deadlock is detected one deadlocking thread needs to be
rejected to let the other(s) complete.
DB_LOCK_YOUNGEST (9) is the DS default: it means the most recent operation
fails in favor to the oldest one.
DB_LOCK_MINWRITE (6) means the reader(s) are rejected in favor
of the writers even if the reader(s) are older.
Switch the default for FreeIPA to DB_LOCK_MINWRITE for new installs and
also existing installs at update time.
This depends on the backend redesign (https://pagure.io/389-ds-base/issue/49476
and therefore is valid on 389-DS 184.108.40.206 and higher.
