Samba 4 [PATCH 1/1] Add talloc_get_type_abort as a macro

This was diff'd on Samba 4 but should apply to Samba 3 with context fixes.

Based on vlendec's talloc_get_type_abort, but implemented
as a macro to avoid changing libtalloc api, and to make it
easier to pass __location__

TALLOC_ABORT(why) must be defined before talloc_get_type_abort
is used, for samba clients I suggest:
 #define TALLOC_ABORT(why) smb_panic(why)

after all the other includes.

The only bug is that the talloc_asprintf allocated error
message must be free'd by the ABORT function, but as that
will typically quit the process it doesn't really matter.
