      Description

      Currently the LDAP group mapping provider only supports simple (user/password) authentication. In some cases it's more convenient to use GSSAPI (kerberos) authentication here, particularly when the server doing the mapping is already using a keytab provided by the same instance (eg IPA or AD). We should provide a configuration to turn on GSSAPI and put the right UGI 'doAs' calls in place to ensure an appropriate Subject in those calls.
