Yes that's right. I don't enforce UNIX caps before accepting
UNIX calls. It's the same way that we accept all CIFS command
codes even if a client negotiates a downlevel dialect.

In order for you to be *sure* that they'll work you must
do the qfsinfo to find out if they're supported, but even
if you don't do that and are talking to a server that supports
them they'll work if you send them.
