Split of bind-chroot package in Fedora rawhide branch

Hi.

I would like to prevent unpleasant surprises and announce,
that bind-chroot sub-package of bind has been split into
two sub-packages in the Fedora rawhide branch.

Previously the bind-chroot sub-package contained named-chroot.service
enabling users to run named in a chroot environment and also
named-sdb-chroot.service enabling users to run named-sdb
in a chroot environment.

>From now on, there are two subpackages:
- 'bind-chroot' - for running named in a chroot (nothing changes)
- 'bind-sdb-chroot' - for running named-sdb in a chroot

User that want to run named-sdb in a chroot must install
the 'bind-sdb-chroot' package explicitly. This change is a part
of fixing Bug #997030. The package will be also NOT
installed if updating to Fedora rawhide, because it cannot
be currently done (AFAIK) without creating unwanted dependencies.

As an addition named-sdb now uses its own chroot path 
'/var/named/chroot_sdb'.

Regards,

Tomas Hozza
