Here's a quick change to make check_parent_access() match the
usage in smbd_check_access_rights() w.r.t. checking privileges
instead of allowing blanket root access.

Foundation of my fixes to get SeBackup/SeRestore working.

Currently does not change smbd behavior (use_privs is
always passed in as "false").

Volker if you're happy please push !
