I'd meant to ask you a question about the patch, but I couldn't manage
to do that before the 4.8 cut-off. I didn't quite understand what the
intent of the patch was. 

apply_gp reads the version from the sysvol path, and then writes it to a
file in the cache directory. But the gpo_version function always read it
from sysvol anyways (and so this cache file is never really used)? Also,
is the benefit of reading from a cache dir only to avoid the recurring
SMB connection, or is there actually another reason?
