For users of bind-dyndb-ldap (LDAP driver for BIND), there's a
significant change in BIND 9.11.

An API for dynamic database was accepted upstream, so patching the
upstream BIND is no longer necessary. However, the upstream API is a bit
different, which has two implications.

First, the minimal required version of bind-dyndb-ldap is the recently
released v11.0 [1].

Second, you have to transform your named.conf section which configures
the dynamic database to reflect the new API. You can see an example of
the new configuration format in the Configuration section of the README
file [2]. If you'd like to do this automatically, there is an upstream
pull request that has a sed script [3].
