Guess who didn't see Daniel's email from this morning about the 7.35 release
before they emailed pushing after 7.35 being out the door ;-)

I have now pushed the changes - as well as a couple of follow up commits.
All the copyright and minor tidy up changes that I did have been merged into
Prash's commit.

Note: All NTLM tests *should* now fail as the code curl generates is a
NTLMv2 type-3 message rather than a v1 - obviously curl will generate a v1
message if the server only supports that and we should add a test case for
that ;-)

As I don't run the test suite here I will fix up the NTLM tests after they
next run through the auto builds - so a) I know which tests I need to fix
and b) what I need to modify the type-3 response to. I have added code to
the time stamping for the test suite to be 01/01/1970 - If anyone has any
different views then please let me know. For example: Curl's epoc (birthday)

I also have a quick question regarding Winbind support as a) I think
Curl_http_ntlm_cleanup() in curl_ntlm.c can be cleaned up a little and b)
I'm only familiar with the SSPI and native message generation at present. In
short I don't think the (void)conn is needed now and the ifndef
USE_WINDOWS_SSPI code to release the target info can be merged into the
#ifdef above - my question is this though...

Can curl still generated native NLTM messages if Winbind support is enabled?
For example should the code read:

#elif defined(NTLM_WB_ENABLED)
  conn->ntlm.target_info_len = 0;


  conn->ntlm.target_info_len = 0;

#if defined(NTLM_WB_ENABLED)

#endif /* USE_WINDOWS_SSPI */

The first assumes that curl cannot generate native messages if Winbind is
