Patch: convenience feature for non-domain clients

Attached is a patch against SAMBA_2_2 that we find useful at our site for
integrating our domain-member Samba servers with our non-domain-member clients.
The background to this is that our Samba servers use "security = domain"
authentication for user accounts, but not all our Windows clients are
members of the domain, with the result that the clients often want to map
shares using non-domain "clientname\user" style accounts.
The patch implements an "ignore client domain" option which forces Samba to
use the server's own domain when authenticating users, ignoring the domain
part of the username provided by the client.
This is particularly useful for sites converting from "security = server"
to "security = domain" who don't want to go around their clients adding
domain parts to all the usernames with which they map shares.
Hope this is of use to someone else,
