(patch by Jacobo adding "cache dir" and "state dir" configuration parameters)

Well, apart from the huge work involved in going through all bug
reports and triage them, nothing..:-)

I would vote to forward this patch to upstream because adding new
configuration parameters impacts the documentation and we certainly
don't want to have Debian's samba to behave differently from upstream.

However, I'm wondeing why this never came from upstream and I suspect
they may have a good reason for not having a "cache dir" and a "state
dir" configuration parameter.

We also have other bugs in samba's BTS which are all related
to people wanting to run two samba daemons on the same host. These bug
reports are rather incriminating the fhs.patch patch than proposing
new configuration parameters. See #247163, #249873

Let's see if one of the Samba Team members who are subscribed to the
Package Tracking System will react here...

CC'ing the maintenance list in case some people are subscribed to it
but not to the PTS.
