### Important fixes
* A regression introduced in sssd-2.6.2 in the IPA provider that
prevented users from login was fixed. Access control always denied
access because the selinux_child returned an unexpected reply.
* A critical regression that prevented authentication of users via AD
and IPA providers was fixed. LDAP port was reused for Kerberos
communication and this provider would send incomprehensible information
to this port.
* When authenticating AD users, backtrace was triggered even though
everything was working correctly. This was caused by a search in the
global catalog. Servers from the global catalog are filtered out of the
list before writing the KDC info file. With this fix, SSSD does not
attempt to write to the KDC info file when performing a GC lookup.
