Registry ACLs and credentials

I've been working on a secure, remote LDAP backend for Samba4, which has
required some re-engineering work. This showed up all the callers to
ldb_wrap_connect(), and this naturally includes the Samba4 registry.
Currently we entirely ignore the issue, but with the main LDB acls work
ongoing, I wondered how we intended to handle this?
I was hoping we might be able to re-use the same module in both cases,
which raises my real question: Can someone who understands the registry
layer please plumb the session_info and credentials information from the
callers into the registry? (The current layering makes my head spin a
This should also allow a forwarded registry (with krb5 forwarded
tickets), authentication on a remote ldb backed and other neat things.
In ldb we will shortly pass down:
- the session_info, which is typically the system token in ldbedit or
the user's own token in smbd.
- a separate set of credentials, to override the above, so that ldbedit
will use command line parameters.
