Bug Description: mod_admserv: Task cache refresh uses wrong credentials
Reviewed by: ???

Fix Description: When the user requests a Task url, the admin server first
figures out which server instance (or product) the request is for, then
to see if it has seen that server or product before. If not, it uses the
function sync_task_sie_data() to read the task data from the SIEs and ISIEs.
However, it needs to use the credentials of the currently authenticated user
to do so, because the tasks are protected by ACIs, and the user should
allowed to read those tasks the user has access to. The interface to read
these tasks is not great. It expects the SIE is a user with a password, and
it attempts to bind as that user, instead of the currently authenticated
I had to hack it to force it to use the current userdn and password instead
of the SIE DN and SIE password.
The SIE DN and password are now deprecated for binding. There were a couple
of places where the SIE was used for both the bind DN and the SIE DN. I've
created another structure member for the admservSieDN for use as the SIE
configuration base DN) instead of as a bind DN, and deprecated the use
SIE as the bind DN elsewhere in the code.
