I finally made the patch and uploaded it. You can access it at the 
following URL: 
The patch is against the samba 3.0.11pre1 release. It should work 
against 3.0.9 and 3.0.10 as well but I haven't tried it.

cd-ing into the source directory and using patch -p1 should do the trick.
Please read the REAME.winbind-patch file in the nsswitch directory 
before you start using this patch.

If you find any bugs or you think of any improvements then please let me 
know :)
