Yes.  I think the right place to insert the new logic is at the
beginning of krb5_cc_select().  If server has the referral realm (use
krb5_is_referral_realm() for clarity, although we're just looking for an
empty realm), then call krb5_get_fallback_host_realm() and, if it
succeeds, construct a copy of server using the first fallback realm, to
be passed to the modules.
