Administrators should have Backup and Restore privileges by default
On Windows, Administrators have Backup and Restore privileges by default. This allows them to bypass certain access controls (Read for Backup and Write/Delete for Restore) when a file is opened with "Backup Intent". Certain administrative tasks (such as taking ownership of an entire directory tree) are done with "backup intent" in order to avoid needing to grant Administrators explicit permissions. We should follow Windows' behavior here, and grant these privileges to Administrators by default.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. smbadm show -mp
"backup" and "restore" are set to "off"
