This patch adds the architecture for an IDMAP backend system including a
new smb.conf parameter "winbind backend".  Right now, the only valid value
is "tdb" but I'm currently working on an LDAP backend (I guess we should
eventually do an ads backend too).

Untar this in the top-level Samba repository (it adds the file
source/nsswitch/winbindd_idmap_tdb.c) and apply the patch with -p0.

(See attached file: wb_idmap_backend.tar)
