You might want to take a look at the notify_fam.c module. It
exports the SMB_VFS_OP_NOTIFY_WATCH operation which is
sufficient to support the new notify engine. You might want
to write a module that does the polling. With
"event_add_timed" recurring events are possible entirely
within the module without touching the main smbd event loop.
