Commit message:

    Require explicit intention for empty password.
    This is normally used for unauthenticated bind, and
    https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4513#section-5.1.2 recommends:
    > Clients SHOULD disallow an empty password input to a Name/Password
    > Authentication user interface
    This is (mostly) a cherry-pick of 95ede12 from upstream. I've removed
    the bit in ldap_test.go, which is unrelated to the security issue.
    This fixes CVE-2017-14623.
    Closes: #876404
