As discussed with Howard Chu, HP is contributing the code for an Active
Directory Authentication overlay (written by Neil Dunbar) to OpenLDAP.

The adauth overlay provides passthrough authentication to Active Directory for
LDAP simple bind operations. The local LDAP entry referenced in the bind
operation is mapped to its counterpart in the Active Directory, an LDAP bind
operation is performed against Active Directory, and results are returned based
on the results of that remote operation. If a local userPassword attribute is
populated for the entry, it is used instead of the AD authentication.
