It was more like "next month" rather than "next week," but I
finally took some more time to look at this today.

Again I think it's surprising how little code you had
to implement to get something that seems is at least
modestly functional.

FYI I have undertaken an effort to make the upstream code
suitable for use for any IPA version (3.0-4.11) in the
past few months.  Most of what I've done is in line with
the things you found were necessary for IPA v3.1 support.
Early on I got most of the support for IPA v4.5 upstream,
and have been holding off trying to get other similar
changes out for review for other versions until I've had
more of a chance to test some of what's new in IPA v4.5.

In the coming weeks I will start posting more of this
work for review.  You'll see that I'm modifying many
things you do in your series (such as making version
checks not assume only v3.5.1 and v4.2 are supported).
My priority is on newer versions, but I want the code
to be (at least) correct for IPA v3.0, v3.1, and v3.5
as well.

What might be best is for you to consider using the
patches when I send them out.  I'll gladly give you some
credit when I do if you like (suggested-by, reviewed-by,
tested-by, whatever you feel is appropriate).  Please
let me know if you would like to be on the Cc list for
this sort of change.

Yes we're still figuring out how the upstream tools need
to interact with the kernel for configuration.

This is great to hear.

I unfortunately can't promise you you'll have the full
connection up and running, but we can probably get very
close.

It would be very helpful for you (someone other than me,
that is) to participate in validating the changes I am
now finalizing.  I hope you're willing.

I'll offer a few more specific comments on each of your
patches.
