Do a VFS_CONNECT in pysmbd

You asked me to prepare patches to do a VFS_CONNECT in pysmbd.

my vfs-connect branch is the patches I have worked on for this.
However, as Volker points out, working without a specific share is
dangerous - some VFS modules might be specified per-share.  

It will be cumbersome, but we may have to make the share we operate an
extra parameter to 'samba-tool ntacl get/set'. 

Also, as-is these patches fail tests - the change to vfs_xattr_tdb to
fail if not connected breaks a vfstest test for example.  

So, we still have a little way to go, but I wanted you to know where
I've got, given you specifically asked about it.
