ok - looks like to Samba and Windows servers level 0x105 or 0x106 might 
work here and return a unique number for an inode - although Samba only 
uses the low 32 bits as inode num which may cause collisions on systems in 
which unsigned long (the size of the i_ino field) is longer than 32 bits.. 
 Hard part is finding the exact layout for these two frames.
