I see the drivername dumped to a temporary log entry in
construct_printer_info_2 (immediately before it is copied to the return
buffer) but don't see it on the wire.

FYI - The construct_printer_info_1 routine looks interestingly different
between Samba 2..2.3a and head
The first sub-field within the printer_info_1 "description" field is filled
in 2.2.3a with get_called_name() prepended to the printername while in head
this subfield is simply printername.
