In response to upstream use cases, we're re-enabling this
for the time being, despite the potential security issues.

Please post v2 with updated commit message.

Suggested commit message:

nss: Re-enable NSS module loading after chroot (Bug 27389)

The glibc 2.33 release enabled /etc/nsswitch.conf reloading,
and to prevent potential security issues like CVE-2019-14271
the re-loading of nsswitch.conf and all mdoules was disabled
when the root filesystem changes (see bug 27077).

Unfortunately php-lpfm and openldap both require the ability
to continue to load NSS modules after chroot. The packages
do not exec after the chroot, and so do not cause the
protections to be reset. The only solution is to re-enable
only NSS module loading (not nsswitch.conf reloading) and so
get back the previous glibc behaviour.

In the future we may introduce a way to harden applications
so they do not reload NSS modules once the root filesystem
changes, or that only files/dns are available pre-loaded
(or builtin).
