Control fields in Security Descriptor

I noticed a Samba server bug when I was debugging a problem in a
client patch I was testing.  The client patch was sending the
incorrect (endian reversed) Control flags in the security descriptor I
was sending to Samba on create.

I noticed that Windows server correctly rejected it, but Samba server
accepted the security descriptor with the incorrect (endian reversed)
Control field.   Probably Samba server bug to ignore validation of the
Control flags in the SD.
