passdb/pdb_sql.c: "const unsigned char *" is incompatible with "const char *"

Argument of type "const unsigned char *" is incompatible with parameter of
type "const char *".
The experimental pdb modules (pdb_mysql, pdb_pgsql and pdb_xml) have
been a bit neglected during the last few releases of Samba 3 as they
haven't been actively maintained. I was the original author and
maintainer, but I no longer work on Samba 3 and I no longer use any of
the modules in production. I was hoping I could nonetheless keep the code
working for those that still use it, but this turned out to be harder then I
I'll remove these modules unless somebody steps up as a maintainer. If
there's anyone willing to take over maintainance of either one of
these modules, please let me know. Otherwise, I'll put the modules up
on my samba.org homepage as a separate tarball for those interested
(including some of the patches that have been published).
See bug 3375. If someone wants to maintain these modules outside
the Samba source tree, that is fine. But the source has been removed
from the upcoming 3.0.22 release.
