Description

Currently, the named pipe interface exported by libsmbfs uses the
over-the-wire (OtW) SMB file handles as named pipe handles.

It would be much safer to use real file handles, i.e. so we can ensure
an OtW close happens if a consuming process crashes, has bugs, etc.

These file descriptors will be additional open instances of the
/dev/nsmb driver, which will be augmented with state to track
when an open instance has an open named pipe.
