attached patch makes the smb_traffic_analyzer VFS module differ between version 1 and version 2 of the
protocol it's using for the data it sends to a receiver.

Protocol version 2 is work in progress, and more patches on this issue will follow.
This patch is just the groundwork to have the module differ for protocol versions at all.

In every case, it's compatible with the current released versions of smb_traffic_analyzer,
as it automatically uses version 1 if nothing has been changed in the configuration.

Plans for version 2 are currently: 
- support *any* VFS operation
- libssh support (or something similar)
- make it easier for the receiver to parse the incoming traffic

BTW, more information on SMB Traffic Analyzer and it's support applications can be found here:

This patch has been written and is intendet for branch 3-5-test.

Please review and push it if positive ;)
