    dfs: always call create_conn_struct with root privileges
    This fixes a bug in dfs_samba4 identified by Daniel Müller.
    create_conn_struct calls SMB_VFS_CONNECT which requires root privileges.
    SMB_VFS_CONNECT in turn calls dfs_samba4_connect which connects to samdb.
    Calls were made to this function without ever becoming root (notably via setup_dfs_referral)
    which resulted in an error and the VFS connect failing. This happens when you have an active
    directory domain controller with host msdfs = yes in smb.conf and dfs links in place.
