Please keep in mind that dos_*() calls dos_to_unix(), file
name conversion, on file name argument.  I had trouble on
accessing files or directories that names are in
non-alphabet (I use Japanese with 'coding system = cap'
and cannot access many files with kanji file name) when
vfs merge is committed on MAIN (now SAMBA_TNG) branch last
# I inserted dos_to_unix() in many (not all) part of
# vfs_*() calls. I posted samba-bugs (PR#15527), but no
# changes for now.
