the Linux API does support level2, but right now the Samba code
doesn't take advantage of that.

Before changing that what we really need is a good oplock test
suite. We really have no way of validating our oplock code at the
moment, so I'm reluctant to make changes before we are able to do that

I did start on a oplock testsuite in smbtorture, but it is woefully
inadequate at the moment. We will need some sort of state machine and
a dual server test to validate our behaviour against NT.
