Excessive logging on samba

|Milestone:||nice to have someday||Component:||samba|
We have had problems where samba is creating very large syslog files, even when samba logging is disabled in Zentyal. This increases the load average on the system and results in poor performance for users.
We have had to create a custom template file to change this line in smb.conf
full_audit:success = connect opendir open disconnect unlink mkdir rmdir rename
full_audit:success = connect disconnect unlink mkdir rmdir rename
(Ie audit logging only when file is edited or deleted, not just accessed.)
This helps but it would be good to disable this logging completely on sites where performance is more important than audit information.
