In order to support the load balancer within the slapd process and integrate correctly, we declare it to be a backend as that is the best match - allows us to register all the callbacks that a subsystem like this needs. The only problem is that slapd will skip startup for backends that are not used by at least one database.
The linked patch deals with this limitation and a few bugs encountered along the way (some code has not been exercised in a long time and has suffered from some bitrot).
The support to provide backend global configuration was nominally present but has never worked with cn=config. The first two patches deal with that. The last patch introduces a new backend flag that indicates that it should be started up even if there is no database using it.
