I would love to see the specific example of how get_global_sam_name()
(rather than one of the callers) was broken.  The other changes all
looked pretty sane (or understandable until we get the trustdom cache
working), but this one just looked odd.   That's why I replied to the
commit message.  

I think what we need is a get_default_domain_name() call, that does what
get_global_sam_name() now does.
