Yes, the fuss over the 'PAC licence' is old.  Indeed, if they licenced
their CIFS documentation under this licence, then we would have many
less problems.  (And even that licence has changed recently).

The problem is, the 'reserved' fields are not reserved, they are used,
and we have an idea what they should be in Samba4's netlogon.IDL.

Really, there isn't anything stopping us here, we just need to actually
handle this.  For now, we just ask the DC directly for the information
we would otherwise get in the PAC.
