Make ntlmv2 as an authentication mechanism within ntlmssp
instead of ntlmv1.
Parse type 2 response in ntlmssp negotiation to pluck
AV pairs and use them to calculate ntlmv2 response token.
Also, assign domain name from the sever response in type 2
packet of ntlmssp and use that (netbios) domain name in
calculation of response.

Enable cifs/smb signing using rc4 and md5.

Changed name of the structure mac_key to session_key to reflect
the type of key it holds.

Use kernel crypto_shash_* APIs instead of the equivalent cifs functions.
