nmbd packet queue

the packet queue code in samba is completely redundant. remember, it
dates back to 1.9.15 when samba didn't have the state machine in it:
send_nmb_query( ..., nmb_sequence_no);
if (received_packet.nmb_sequence_no == nmb_sequence_no)
so, while waiting for a _specific_ response, all other packets got queued,
then taken off the queue and dealt with. unfortunately, if there was no
response to the query, you're stuffed.
this code, i believe, has been redundant since the introduction of the
nmbd state machine in 1.9.16.
