Subject: [EXTERNAL] Clarification on support of SMB_SET_FILE_BASIC_INFO

Hi Dochelp,

Reading [MS-CIFS].pdf
In section It mentions TRANS2_SET_PATH_INFORMATION and lists several infolevels and what they are used for.
It specifically lists SMB_SET_FILE_BASIC_INFO.
This works well against all windows servers I have tested with.

However, section contradicts this and states that SMB_SET_FILE_BASIC_INFO is NOT supported for TRANS2_SET_PATH_INFORMATION.

Considering and also that it seems to work against windows servers, it incorrect?
