a way to disable ADS in winbind in samba3

It might be a good idea to have the option disable fallback to RPC, so that
normally Samba tries to survive a misconfiguration (albeit complaining loudly!)
but if told to, will fail on encountering a botched AD.

This allows admins on sites where  AD is expected to work to instantly discover
when it isn't (;-))
