[SRM] Permission to upload samba in s-p-u to fix #522907

Hello guys,

Bug #522907 seems to affect users who use Winbind along with an
OpenLDAP server. These users are experiencing frequent winbind crashes
that seem to de due to a behaviour of OpenLDAP that hadn't been  
anticipated by Samba developers.

Upstream Samba developers made a (simple) patch to fix this, which
will be pushed in their 3.3.4 and 3.2.12 releases (FYI, we have 3.2.5
in lenny).

It might be possible that #484235 is also fixed by this patch.

The planned patch is attached.

Would it be OK to upload this to s-p-u?


Goal: Fix winbind crashes when interacting with OpenLDAP by having
      ldap_search_with_timeout() always returns LDAP_TIMELIMIT_EXCEEDED
      in the error case

Fixes: #522907

Status wrt upstream: Fixed in 3.3.4
