[cifs-protocol] Backing store linkage for MS-NRPC, trust account details

The MS-NRPC document does not specify the linkage to the backing store
for any of it's operations. 

For example, the NetServerAuthenticate3 query talks only about client
computer accounts, but in NETLOGON_SECURE_CHANNEL_TYPE,
interdomain trust accounts are described.

It makes sense that these both refer to computer and domain trust
accounts found under cn=users, but this is not specified, nor are the
attributes used specified.

Similarly, the NetrSetPassword2 call sets a trust account password, but
the operation of this call - what LDAP/DRS visible attribute it changes
- are not specified.

Please start with these, but to also note that, the
NetrDatabaseSync{,2} calls need the same level of specification.

These are just examples - like in my request regarding LSA, can you
please clarify for the whole document which protocol buffers line up
with which objects and attributes in the underlying database.
