We should not need that - the NTLMSSP and SPNEGO code does not use piles
of static variables, it's just the one context that is the problem.
All you need to do is change 'global_ntlmssp_state' into something keyed
off that VUID.  See it's use in reply_spnego_negotiate() and

Just make sure you don't treat this new vuid as 'real' - I added a
'finished_sesssetup' flag on the VUID in Samba4, and use two different
lookup functions, one for the rest of samba, and one for just the
session setup.  

The next issue I need to tackle in Samba4 is that of resource
consumption - too many half-completed NTLMSSP logins.  But as we allow
guest logins anyway, it's not much worse than can already be done.
