This is exactly how idmap_ad[ex] works now though. I don't see how
what you are proposing is a larger change. Seems like the filtering
just needs to be placed in the idmap plugin and you are done.

I'm confused. Not running Winbind implies that the Windows
users and groups match a local unix user and therefore you
shouldn't really have the > NGROUPS issue. And if you run Winbind,
Just add the filter to the idmap backend and case closed.
So the smbd-only patch is really the wrong place to solve it IMO.
Am I explaining myself ok?
