exactly. It must be the modules choice if it wants to register.

yes. The module should call ntvfs_interface_version() as the first
Samba function it calls. It should then decide based on the result of
that call whether it will continue. Potentially it could have builtin
two sets of code for two different versions of Samba, and choose which
function pointers to use based on the result of
ntvfs_interface_version(). Only the module itself can make this
