That sounds ok to me. I especially like adding the NTSTATUS
return :-).

FYI: We're going to need to be able to flag opens from

unlink on open files and not have the share modes conflict
if all opens are unix style - similar to what I did with
the posix lock code. Just wanted to run that past you.
