libsmbclient.h change breaks API

Your change in -r 8093 to libsmbclient.h in SAMBA_3_0 had an unwanted
side-effect.  While 'close' is a poor name for a structure member, it is
part of the public API for libsmbclient.  

I noticed this because I wanted to recompile the perl module
FileSys::SmbClient 3.0 against the new Samba I just installed.  

Is there a sensible way to keep the old API?  It seems silly to bump the
version just for this...
