Samba HEAD supports restricting user's to a single workstation, (its not
secure btw, becouse the client gets to chose the 'workstation name')
with an LDAP backend.  The userWorkstations attribute is a
comma-seperated list of workstations a user is permitted to log in
from.  Blank (or non-existant) means all.
