The order doesn't matter. smb_register_idmap() puts a backend in the
list of available backends and all backend names are unique.

The actually used idmap backend is found by walking thru the linked
list and finding the available backend with the correct name.

Doesn't matter much, really. Only for the sake of consistency,
