Thanks, I finally got it to work, but now I have a different problem. It seems
that the 'dirent' type is different for vfs.c and the modules, which means if
I try to rewrite/"fake" dirent structs then Samba gets confused.

For instance, if my module does
snprintf(dirent->d_name, MAXNAMLEN, "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz");
Then Samba will show the entry as "ijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"

What's the correct way to fix this?
