auth_log testing

The auth logging code is making standard samba debug calls so it should
be going to the samba logs.

The log levels are:

2 - log authentication failures
3 - successful authentications
4 - successful authorisations
5 - Anonymous authentications and authorisations.

Alternatively the following Debug classes exist.

Also the events get sent via the messaging api, which is how the tests work.

Hope that this helps
