[PATCH] ldbdump, and thanks for tdbdump -e!

I figured you might be interested to see what I've done with the
tdb_rescue API you built a few weeks ago. Still trying to sort out the
DB that we worked, I built ldbdump. It uses the backend ldb_pack
functions from ldb_tdb as well as the Samba syntax functions to
determine if the potential DB record passed to the hook is a valid ldb
This eliminated around 12 more records - indeed all the 'duplicate'
records you found could be eliminated as actually not being valid
records at all.
Thank you very much for the tdb_rescue API and tdbdump -e, it would not
be possible to recover so much of the data without it.
Naturally, it will need a manpage and popt conversion before it is
installed, but for now it may be the vital tool for some other
unfortunate site that forgets to enable barrier=1 on their ext3
