Samba function test

The IFSTEST suite is only available as part of the IFS development kit.

There are a number of other differences I have found running other parts 
If I fix (some of) these, what should I do with the fixes?

Am I correct in assuming that Samba shares should produce exactly the same 
results, including error codes as IFSTEST?

Probably not - but it sounds like a good idea.  Is it publicly
available, or only in the IFS development kit?
