Subject: [PATCH 71/75] Ticket 47976: deadlock in mep delete post op

Bug Description:
	When deleting the original entry, some DB pages are acquired in write.
	The deadlock occurs because when reading the parent entry of the MEP entry
	MEP plugin requires read access to one of the page acquired by the deletion of the original entry.
        The read access can be granted if it is using the parent txn.
	This bug requires that the parent entry of the MEP entry is not found in the entry cache, so
	it requires database access

Fix Description:
	Fix ldbm_delete, so that it reads id2entry db with parent txn
