For those with Samba3 VFS experience:
I am trying to wrap my brain around the workings of Opaque vs. Transparent
functions. So far, I understand that calling SMB_VFS_NEXT_XXXX() is also
involved in the opaque/transparent question.
Here's what I don't yet understand: What effect does setting
SMB_VFS_LAYER_TRANSPARENT have on VFS function behavior. What different
effect does SMB_VFS_LAYER_OPAQUE have? In other words, what (internal)
changes to these flags enforce?
Any information on the workings of the other flags would also be of interest
I await responses with baited keyboard.
