Hi Samba team,

on git://,

in the "master" branch, you can find the protocol version 2 
implementation of vfs_smb_traffic_analyzer. The repository
is rebased to the current master branch.

Development took very long, as I had to adapt my life to a newborn
daughter and because I need to write a working receiver in parallel of
the module development.

Protocol v2 among many changes prominently features:
- an easy to parse protocol format
- AES encryption of the data using a shared key
- subversions of the protocol, allowing me to add new features while
staying compatible with receivers that handle older versions.
- an option to extend the amount of data that is being send

This work adds a utility program called "smbta-util". With it, the user
can enable/change/disable the encryption settings of the module
on the fly.

Please review, and get it in if positive ;)
