The problem with those particular tests is that they test one particular
thing (the need of OBJ_OPENIF flag in kernel and proper errors returned
on name collisions) and we need information from all three places. I
don't see how else we can test this without the use of both ntdll &
kernel32 functions in one place. Which makes it rather hard to test on
anything but winNT.

On the other hand. If we don't care about what flags kernel32 use calling
ntdll, we can just test creation of the named object with the same name in
kernel32. And see what kind of errors we'll get there.
