I really, really want the NDR encoded 'info3' (actually, I want level 6)
transported intact between winbindd and Samba. Going back and forth via
another structure is not only a pain, it is error prone. If we do this
right, and Microsoft adds extra information in the 'reserved' fields (or
another level), then we simply pass on that information.
