it doesn't facilitat idmap_sss, it *adds* idmap_sss. It's a development
branch forket from the main samba development branch where I've added
the idmap_sss sources taken from the upstream sssd git repository.

only on Redhat, because there Samba is patched to include idmap_sss. 
Other Linuxes ship vanilla upstream Samba that doesn't include idmap_sss.

you will have to build your own packages on Ubuntu from source if you 
want to use idmap_sss.
