[Samba4] Group policies in AD

Hi Andrews,

we all know that we made big progress to support GPOs on the (Windows)
client side. I added now also the second default group policy for the
domain controllers. For now it will not be very import since s4 itself
doesn't inherit policies yet (hope that we make some progress here in
future - that someone is willing to take this) but so we have it for
future use.

Now some restant issues:
- We have to be more careful regarding the permissions on the
directories and files of them; consider bug #5483:
- Our default group policies are empty and the one which are shipped
with Windows Server are not. They contain templates and files with
default settings. So my question here: do we need to open a new file
copy permission request (like schema and display specifier files)? I
personally think so. It would be nice if MS could ship them as an
archive so we could decompress the whole content on provision time.
