You need the header files from the IFS (installable file system) kit which can 
be obtained from MS. However, it will a) not be free and b) not be allowed to 
incorporate any information from there into an open source product such as 
Usually these IOCTLs are used to access kernel mode data from user mode code 
and I guess that they simply transport the NTFS IOCTLs via a RPC call to the 
remote end. So this could be a (very, very secret :) NTFS IOCTL. Just guessing
