release 0.9.5 of nss-pam-ldapd

This is an update for the 0.9 development branch of nss-pam-ldapd that
includes a few small improvements. Development has slowed down a bit and
the current release should be reasonably stable. Focus now will be on
further testing and stabilising.

Users are encouraged to test this release and report any problems. The
pynslcd implementation is not considered as stable as nslcd yet.

A summary of the changes since 0.9.4:

* improve test suite (change IP range)
* handle situation better when server (or firewall) closed the
  connection (thanks Tim Harder)
* make daemonising a little more robust and try to log more failures
* fix integer format strings (thanks Jianhai Luan and Patrick McLean)
* documentation updates (thanks Dalibor Pospíšil)
* fix range check for search access (thanks David Binderma)
* fix a bug in the NSS library when encountering IPv6 addresses in the
  hosts map (thanks Mark R Bannister)
* allow configuring the name of the NSS and PAM modules
* adjust the Linux OOM (Out-Of-Memory) killer score to avoid killing
  nslcd (thanks Patrick McLean)
* portability improvements (thanks Tim Rice)
