This function is used to parse the results returned in a search
operation that uses a server-side sort control.
It takes a null terminated array of LDAPControl structures
usually obtained by a call to the ldap_parse_result function. A
returncode which points to the sort control result code,and an
array of LDAPControl structures that list the client controls to
use with the search. The function also takes an out parameter
attribute and if the sort operation fails, the server may return
a string that indicates the first attribute in the sortKey list
that caused the failure. If this parameter is NULL, no string is
returned. If a string is returned, the memory should be freed by
calling the ldap_memfree function.
