Attached is a slightly reworked patch for Hemanth to try if he has time.

Possible deficiencies:

1. It modifies the info3 extra sids in place rather than creating a new one.
2. It does not distinguish between the compressed SIDs being in the same domain
as the user or a different domain (and thus perhaps should add them to
groups or sids depending on that question),

Depending on feedback I can clean it up further and submit it with a
signed-off-by etc.
