I am sorry but I don't have a patch and, as I am on holiday out of home from
tomorrow, I won't work on it before mid-august. And I don't know very well
the Samba coding practice concerning portability. But, if it is not done
when I'm back, I send you a patch.
Basically, I would run the command via smbrun(), connected to a pipe(), with
anything from stderr going to the smbd log. The first line of stdout would
contain the result. An empty stdout would mean that the username cannot be
mapped (like for autofs executable maps).
We also have two choices for the 'username map' parameter when 'username map
script' is set : either it is ignored, or it is parsed after the script, but
only if the script didn't return anything. Up to you.
