[PATCH: Offline Backup]

The samba_backup bash script is a tool that creates a local backup of a
DC using the file system.  This patch replaces that script with a new
samba-tool command called "domain backup offline".

If the samba_backup bash script is used on a DC while it is running,
there could be database corruption.  This patch adds readonly locking
mode to the tdbbackup tool and uses the new functionality to do a safe
backup.  Thorough testing is added, including a new testenv target
constructed from a backup created by the new tool.  The new target is
tagged against all the same tests as the existing 'backup online' and
'rename' targets.
