s3-auth: Remove security=share (depricated since 3.6).
This patch removes security=share, which Samba implemented by matching the per-share password provided by the client in the Tree Connect with a selection of usernames supplied by the client, the smb.conf or guessed from the environment. The rationale for the removal is that for the bulk of security=share users, we just we need a very simple way to run a 'trust the network' Samba server, where users mark shares as guest ok. This is still supported, and the smb.conf options are documented at https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Public_Samba_Server At the same time, this closes the door on one of the most arcane areas of Samba authentication. Naturally, full user-name/password authentication remain available in security=user and above. This includes documentation updates for username and only user, which now only do a small amount of what they used to do.
