LSA and SAMR over SMB use pipes_struct.session_info.session_key. This
one gets initialized with transport layer session key when
pipes_struct is created and initialized. So here we are fine. I agree
that we need to properly name the keys and maintain access to them
using clear intents.

Maybe something like
  NTSTATUS pipe_extract_session_key(pipe, &session_key,
to allow clearly pointing to what is needed in a specific layer?

Then at pipe_struct  there could be a function pointer to handle
internal details of SystemLibraryDTC/NULL/authenticated key, though
over TCPIP transport session key is always eitehr SystemLibraryDTC or
NULL as we don't have DRSUAPI in Samba3.
