It works. s4 DC and s3fs, to 3.6 client. We can log in but that's all.

This is a comparison of what we are doing now with NFS and nss-pam-ldapd 
and what the official winbind method has to offer.

1. The uidNumber and gidNumber on the client are different from that on 
the server. How do I get the same mapping?

2. How do I get the shares from the s4 server over to the client? I 
think s3fs does cifs somehow.
