[cifs-protocol] MS-SAMR SetUserInfo fails to backlink to RC4

I was looking for a concise reference for the cryptography used in
SamrSetUserInfo2 for my security overview doc.
220.127.116.11.4 SamrSetInformationUser2 (Opnum 58)
does not really fill in the details of the cryptographic operation.
it does say the server MUST update the clearTextPassword
attribute with the (decrypted) but it only makes sense if you search
the PDF for RC4 and find 18.104.22.168 RC4 Cipher Usage, but even this
references different structure names.
I think this could be improved to link clearly back to the exact
cryptographic operations from the operation that uses it, rather than
just saying 'decrypted'.
