New Revision: 2794


a very simple version of the unixuid NTVFS pass-thru module. In
conjunction with the posix backend this gives us a way to correctly
setup the unix security context in Samba4.

I chose the following method to determine the unix uid's and gid's to
use given the list of SIDs from the login process

 - look for a "UnixID" field in the sam record. If present, then use it
   (check if the record is of the right type as well)

 - if UnixID is not present, then look for the "UnixName" sam
   field. If it is present then use getpwnam() or getgrnam() to find
   the unix id.

 - if UnixID and UnixName are not present, then look for a unix
   account of the right type called by the same name as the sAMAccountName field.

 - if none of the above work then fail the operation with NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED

obviously these steps only work well with a local SAM. It will need to
be more sophisticated in future.

I did not put any cache in place at all. That will need to be added
for decent performance.


Sorry, the patch is too large (914 lines) to include; please use WebSVN to see it!
