Allow a site to be specified as part of the domain name

      Our AD setup includes multiple sites. When Hudson retrieves the SRV record for
      the entire domain, 5 domain controllers get returned, but only 3 of those (the
      ones local to this site) are actually accessible. If Hudson ends up trying to
      authenticate against one of the other two, the request will time out and
      authentication fails.

      This can be fixed allowing a site name to be configured and changing the SRV
      query to _ldap._tcp.<site>._sites.<domain> if a site name is specified.

      The attached patch implements this for the Unix (LDAP) mode of the
      active-directory plugin. The site can be configured by prefixing it to the
      domain name(s), e.g. 'headoffice@mydomain.com' instead of 'mydomain.com'.
