Hello all,

Here is a patch, which is an improved version of the patch that i posted
1 month ago, which enable samba to work as a BDC of a NT-4.0 PDC.
this patch is against the SAMBA_3_0 branch (formerly CVS 3.0.1pre4)

what it does:
- when nmbd receives an "announce change to uas or sam" packet it parses
it and put some infos in a struct which is passed to smbd by the
internal message subsystem.
	fields are: pdcname, low_serial, and the 3 modified_counts

- when smbd receives the message, it forks and start processing the
infos it just received in order to create the right
DatabaseDeltasRequest for the right database.

- it parses the deltas and gets all users and groups informations (only
adding those not delete), and also all the account policy in the

the patch:
- adds a smbd/deltas.c which creates a modcount.tdb, and creates the
requests in order to get the deltas
- adds a rpc_client/cli_netlogon_util.c which contains the code from
utils/net_rpc_samsync.c ( code is moved from net_rpc_samsync into
cli_netlogon_util )
- modify some stuff in rpc_netlogon.h

Waiting for your comments.
