I think the correct fix is to then declare a struct VERSION, fill in the
elements with the constants from ntlmssp.idl and then do an
ndr_push_struct_blob.  If VERSION isn't negotiated, then we should, as
far as I can tell, be able to use the same msprc_gen call, but with a

You should be able to do the same in the source3 code, as we are trying
hard to keep them identical, and they both have access to the same IDL.

I hope this helps.  I'm sorry for the extra work, but I really dislike
unexplained magic constant byte arrays.
