> This patch set:
>  * switches the ad_dc test environment to the pre-fork process model
>  * increases the default number of pre-fork workers from 1 to 4
>  * Allows the netlogon service to run on pre-forked worker processes
> CI results: https://gitlab.com/samba-team/devel/samba/pipelines/35387410
> The rpc_server can now run in the pre-fork process model. Due to the use
> of shared handles and resources all of the rpc end points are serviced
> in the first worker process. Those end points that can be run in
> multiple processes (currently only Netlogon and management) are serviced
> in the first and any subsequent workers.
> Still to come, pre-fork worker restart and limits on the number of
> connection processes started by the standard process model.
> Review and comments appreciated.
