Unfortunately, I haven't had time to spend on this in a while so I
haven't really given it the time it deserves. My gut feeling is that
there are enough questionable portions of this code in CIFS that it
really needs an overhaul from "first principles" -- starting by making
the encryption algorithms use the standard kernel crypto libs and a
review of what NTLMSSP flags are being set in the negotation. Some of
that may just be my lack of familiarity with the code, but a lot of the
unicode conversion in smbencrypt.c looks questionable.
