Does anyone know why smbd sends keepalives to a password server?
Neither the security=server smbd nor the authentication server smbd seem
to actually do anything with the messages, unless I'm missing something.
Unless someone stands up to defend password server keepalives, I would
argue that the cleanest change would be to simply do away with them.
