Flags: partially documented function

INT 21 - Named Pipes - LOCAL DosWaitNmPipe - AWAIT AVAIL. OF PIPE INSTANCE

	AX = 5F38h
	DS:DX -> pipe name
	BX:CX = timeout value
Return: CF clear if successful
	CF set if error
	    AX = error code
Notes:	when a client gets a return code of ERROR_PIPE_BUSY on attempting to
	  open a pipe, it should issue this call to wait until the pipe
	  instance becomes available again; on return from this call, the
	  client must attempt to open the pipe once again
	this function was introduced by LAN Manager but is also supported by
	  the Novell DOS Named Pipe Extender, Banyan VINES, OS/2 Virtual DOS
	  Machines, and others
