s3:lib/gencache: place gencache.tdb into /var/cache/samba
/var/lock/samba is located on tmpfs on newer systems,
but we want to keep things like the server affinity cache

Shouldn't gencache.tdb placed in the state directory? At least the
documentation suggests that this is meant for persistent data.
On the other hand, winbindd_cache.tdb is placed in state_path. Does that
database hold any data that needs to be kept persistent, or should it be
moved to cache_path?
At least my current understanding is that 'lock directory' and 'cache
directory' could be placed on a tmpfs, while the important information
that needs to be kept across reboots is in the 'state directory'.
