Since 3.0.20 winbind is split into several processes, one
per domain. One process forks the children and sends the
requests that should go to that domain via sendto_domain()
and friends in an async manner, so that requests to other
children can be handled while one domain controller might be
slow, down or otherwise not responding fast. This is not
100% done yet, but the main code paths are async. Look for
example at winbind_pam_auth. I'd not like to add additional
calls to winbind that do not follow the same pattern.
