Fixing libwbclient struct wbcAuthUserInfo

Hi folks,

while trying to make Samba4 use wbcAuthUserInfoEx I realized that there's no 
way to get the info3 structure winbind is putting into the extra_data 
ndr_encoded, libwbclient just drops that. Now this is obviously a simple fix, 
doable by adding a struct wbcBlob to the wbcAuthUserInfo struct, but that'd 
break the ABI.

I don't really feel like adding a struct wbcAuthUserInfo2 and a 
wbcAuthUserInfoEx2 call, which would be the alternative.

Given that we're at version 0.4 of the library so far, I don't feel too bad 
about breaking the ABI. Any comments?
