KsDispatchQuerySecurity function

The KsDispatchQuerySecurity function is used in the KSDISPATCH_TABLE.QuerySecurity entry to handle querying about the current security descriptor. The assumption is that the KSOBJECT_HEADER structure is being used in the FsContext data structure and that the CreateItem points to a valid item that optionally contains a security descriptor.
