Revert changes to host group container permissions

The openITCOCKPIT 4.5.0 we introduced a major change to the permissions of host groups. This change was done, because of a paradox which the user permissions. If you add a Host from a sub-container to a host group which is located in the Root-Container, you are changing the host group object. This would require write permissions to the Root-Container.

We addressed this issue with openITCOCKPIT 4.5.0. Unfortunately this change caused massive side effect so we decided to rollback the old behavior.

We also resolved an bug, there the form for editing hosts did not display all available hostgroups due to the paradox permissions.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused.
