Anyone remember whether with null-user authentication it is important to
send an encrypted password length of 0 (or whether it is simply ok to
encrypt a password of "\0" normally)?
cifs vfs currently sends non-zero length encrypted password - no matter
what the username.
I did not see an smb.conf option that would require the client to use
null-user authentication but based on the users who have asked for the
change to allow "username=" (null user) presumably there is such a case.
