The list of blocker bugs is getting smaller and smaller. Many thanks to
everyone working on this in any way, it's much appreciated!

These are the current (12) showstoppers:

 lpcfg_gensec_settings uses talloc_reference

 We need to check that the waf configure checks are complete and work as
 the autoconf once

 The winbindd -n switch should not be obeyed for samlogon cache access

 smbclient gets: session setup failed: NT_STATUS_CONNECTION_DISCONNECTED

 dmapi checks missing in waf

 pysmbd.c must properly set up a connection_struct

 samdb didn't validate the validity of a SD before changing it

 Samba 4.0 RC won't build on OpenIndiana

 Sysvol ACLs are a disaster for the AD DC

 S3 didn't manage to register dynamic dns record in a S4 domain

 ACL are not recalculated if parent is changed and inherit is enabled

 winbind can't cope with one-way-trusts
