While there -- can we move the idmap cache there as well?

What that would do: smbd could also put stuff in there. This
is really necessary for people having ACLs and "hide
unreadable". For each file we have to translate the gids to
sids. This basically took down a PDC's LDAP server of a
customer of mine. No winbind around, just smbd.
