RFC [PATCH]: ignore recurisve change notify

Using Isilon's kernel change notify module on a very deep directory
structure can cause a significant slow down in the system.  This patch
allows Samba to ignore recursive CN requests while still honoring
non-recursive requests.  I could make this a custom parameter in the
onefs.so module, but I'm guessing this problem can also apply to inotify
and the stock Samba CN implementation.


Any objections to adding this new parameter?
