Yes, you are right, we must do it this way.  This call will replace the
"port_get_right" call the user does now.

This is so because the rendevouz port is in Mach provided by the trusted port
server mach, while in L4 it must be in the trusted auth server (as auth
doesn't trust anything else).

I was mostly wrong with everything I said ;) at least wrt the auth server.

Neal helped me to sort out my confusion, thanks Neal!
