    source3: remove sock_exec
    Remove the sock_exec code which is no longer needed and additionally has been
    used by exploit code.
    This was originally test support code, the tests relying on the sock_exec
    code have been removed.
    Past exploits have used sock_exec as a proxy for system() matching a talloc
    destructor prototype.
    See for example:
    Exploit for Samba vulnerabilty (CVE-2015-0240) at
        and the Red Hat post at
