Just from looking at the capture I think the below would probably work
although with all the unique pointers I have to wonder if maybe a bunch of
those params are actually just one structure.

Also MIDL syntax is quite a bit different from PIDL syntax. You'll have to
translate to use it with smbcli.

It would also be best to work from a capture of a Windows client because if
the current smbcli IDL isn't right the request could be messed up from the
start in which case you really don't know what you're looking at. If you can
produce such a capture [1] send it to me and I'll verify minimal winreg
calls in Java and then post the MIDL so the Samba guys can update their

uint16_t length;

[1] Just capture regedit operating on a remote machine. Create a key and set
a value so the capture has a couple ops I can do..
