We are working towards a 2.2.2 release maybe by the first of
October.  Currently our infrastructure doesn't really handle these
intermediate patches very well.  We are working on correcting
this for later releases.

The main change was in smbd/oplock.c:open_mode_check() IIRC and few
additional functions added to support this.
