I think the only safe way to achieve this is to block port 464 on the AD
servers for the Linux hosts. Because basically what passwd is doing here
via SSSD is to change the Kerberos password. The same can be done with
the kpasswd command, it does not require any privileges the user only
needs to know his current password. So even if we add an option to force
SSSD to reject password changes for users from trusted domains there are
other ways for users to change the password which cannot be controlled
by IPA.

Please note that changing the AD password with kpasswd would even work
without trust.
