It also explains that you should not change batch levels for any reason
other than perhaps if you're a developer developing a CIFS server.

Why do you want to change batching behavior?

All batch levels are already set to 1 but a command will not be batched
unless it is sent in conjunction with another command. Most jCIFS library
methods to not do that. You would have to use the internal API to
specifically chain together a sequence of commands. But then you have the
problem of porability as most servers really don't support batching
