I rewrite my patch as module.
I have been testing this module as idmap_ldap.c, so I do not have patch for 
module initalization code(configure and Makefile).
Please add initialization to configure and Makefile.
This module working good whenever I tested.

ID map file path is /etc/samba/smbidmap. If there are no smbidmap, module 
make new map file and add new mapping.
Whenever you add this module to exiting samba, you need to delete old 
cache(on my env, /var/lib/samba/*.tdb).

Please feel free to let me know if there any bugs.
Thank you.
