As the IRIX kernel supports oplocks it is the kernel, not Samba,
that will decide an oplock break has taken too long and will
release the oplock after a (30 second I think ?) timeout.

Essentially, this is the same as a Samba "client not responding
to oplock break" message - ie. some client is having problems.

Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
