Will these patches make it into 2.2.8?

Hi Samba team,

as 2.2.8 seems to approach now, have the following patches been
considered for it?  They both don't add functionality, but rather
improve robustness, and are platform independent:


prevents winbindd from damaging its own idmap TDB on write failures
(filesystem full), by rolling back partial changes done by the failed
store of mapping.


avoids the reconnect delay when DC pipes have died, thus avoids
false negatives to be returned to clients, and to be cached.

Not a 100%, however. If there is really no DC available at the time
of query, it will still happen. But it's an improvement compared
to having these false negatives always after a connection died.
