While it is tempting, the idea of fixing Windows bugs by adapting Samba is
something that should be avoided.  If the fix can be used as a
general-purpose improvement to Samba then approach it that way.

Once the VFS layer is in place, we might be able to do some caching 
within that layer, assuming that the underlying filesystem can let VFS 
know if a change has occured in a file or directory.
