Here's an updated patchset from my;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/master4-schannel-ok

We no longer alter the computer name in a cluster, we instead rely on
ctdb readonly records to keep the performance. It seems that all DCs
from Windows 2000 and Samba 3.0 (lastest) support netrLogonSamLogonEx.
Only Windows NT 4.0 needs netrLogonSamLogon() and locking/write per
which would involve cluster communication. But it would be still better
than current situation, where each authentication resets the connection
within winbindd of all other cluster nodes.
