Ah, I get it! Look at the structures in cifslog.txt. If we are on 
\MAILSLOT\NET\NETLOGON we include the LM20Token (which we don't currently 
do). If we are on \MAILSLOT\NET\NTLOGON we return both the LM20Token and
the LMNTToken. Makes a lot of sense.

Actually, now that we hardcode the NT version why don't we hardcode those 
both to 0xFFFF; that's what the spec defines them as.
