Could you please explain, why?

The reason I ask is that https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13813 is about 
backporting changes from git master. Whether you backport them or not,
the symbols were removed already in master, so in my case ipasam needs
to be adopted to that anyway.

I find the changes from https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13813
helpful. Would it help if we make FreeIPA working with git master and
then backport those patches without actual removal of the ABI symbols?
Then both Samba 4.8-4.10 and FreeIPA in the releases where Samba
4.8-4.10 is used can be updated without breakage. Samba 4.11 would
introduce the ABI break but the code out there will be ready to it by
the time.

If I'm correct, the only part of the backports that needs to be withhold
is the commit c906153cc7af21abe508ddd30c447642327d6a5d.
