[jcifs] Will you review my patch to make jcifs-krb5-1.3.17 work on JDK 7, please?

I've noticed KerbAuthExample in jcifs-krb5-1.3.17 doesn't work on JDK 7.
It works fine on JDK 6 but produces "jcifs.smb.SmbAuthException:
Access is denied." on JDK 7.

I've learned that it is due to the change how JDK generates subKey

I prepared the following patch for Kerb5Context.java and saw
KerbAuthExample worked fine on JDK 7.
But I'm newt to jcifs and want my patch reviewed.

<                 return ticket.getSessionKey();
>                 com.sun.security.jgss.ExtendedGSSContext ec =
>                         (com.sun.security.jgss.ExtendedGSSContext) gssContext;

>                 return (Key) ec.inquireSecContext(
>                         com.sun.security.jgss.InquireType.KRB5_GET_SESSION_KEY
>                 //return ticket.getSessionKey();

Note that ExtendedGSSContext and InquireType are classes newly added in JDK 7.
Also note that there is a small difference between the Key object
returned by ticket.getSessionKey() and
ec.inquireSecContext(KRB5_GET_SESSION_KEY) that their getAlgorithm()
outputs are different. The former returns "DES" etc, but the later
returns "1" etc. Looks like it doesn't affect the behavior of
KerberosAuthExample but I'm not sure if getAlgorithm() is used

Thanks and regards,
