[PATHC] libsmbclient APIs to set configuration file and Logging callback function

Hi Jim,

I have sent DCO to contributing at samba.org from corporate email and each
commit is also signed with corporate email.

 I believe with these in place, the code can have Company copyright as per
Readme.contributing from github.com (

Please let me know if I am missing something here and I will take it up
with right folks in the company.

I appreciate all the help.

This is a non-technical review.  The above PR contains a corporate
copyright, which is explicitly disallowed by Samba policy.  I do realize
it can be difficult to get personal copyright in a large company, so I'm
sorry to ask you to find out how to do that.

We are more than happy to give credit in the code.  This can be done by
maintaining the corporate email address, as it is in source3/utils/net.c:

  Copyright (C) 2001 Steve French  (sfrench at us.ibm.com)
  Copyright (C) 2001 Jim McDonough (jmcd at us.ibm.com)

We can also include a direct comment about the company contributing the
patch, just not a copyright.
