Should this be FILE_PIPE_REJECT_REMOTE_CLIENTS?  It seems that most of the flags 
for NtCreateNamedPipeFile start with "FILE_".

And which argument of NtCreateNamedPipeFile should that flag be in?  None of 
them seem quite right to me.  Or is there some other function that should be 
called after NtCreateNamedPipeFile to set that flag?

Last question: The only documentation I found for NtCreateNamedPipeFile is here:

Is there anything better?
