testparm and smb.conf(5) don't agree on synonyms

Hi again.

Whilst building a front-end to smb.conf, I noticed that
testparm (and swat?) and smb.conf(5) disagree on which
parameters are the canonical name and which are synonyms.

I submitted a bug with a patch to fix this by using smb.conf(5)
as the authorative reference and fixing loadparm.c to suit:

(If I've interpreted incorrectly and smb.conf(5) is the incorrect
source, then smb.conf(5) needs to be fixed, and loadparm.c still
needs the "protocol"/"max protocol" keywords fixed up).
