ok, there's a simple (relatively speaking) solution.  split passdb_ops
into smb_passwd and sam_passwd operations.  smbd links against both: nmbd
links only against smb_passwd ops.

struct smb_passwd is used in nmbd_processlogon.c, it actually only
needs ACB_PWNOTREQ (password not required) and "does the user account

which we probably ought to do on a unix basis, not an nt basis, which is
_another_ way of solving the problem.  *oh* except we may need to answer
in "appliance" mode, so we can't do that, have to stick with smb_passwd
darn darn :)
