I've now done the final patches you should need for the common smb
client lib, updated at the URL above.  I think I'll take a break before
I do any more gensec work in s3, to let this settle in.  I do hope to
get the last of the ntlmssp client code in common, but it is no longer
urgent for your work. 


You may wish to look carefully at these changes to the smb sealing code:

This patch removes the server-only context:

This patch uses gensec_wrap() and gensec_unwrap().  I'll need to test
against an older version of Samba for this change, as any bug here is
highly likely to be symmetric:
