Well, here I have to agree with Michael. From an API point
of view there's no point to pass a temporary talloc context
to libnet_smbconf_set_global_param(), I think we should only
pass talloc contexts when there's something that will be
returned. In this sense talloc_stackframe() is just
allocating a temporary talloc ctx. Using that is preferable
IMO to talloc_new(), because it will cause lower-level
errors not to free memory to be corrected earlier.
