I spent ten years of my life figuring out the details of the "Reset on VC=0"
thing.  Now that I really think I really understand it down to the fine
nitty-gritty level, I can confidently say I hate it.

I see no reason to support reset on VC=0, but it's still there in Windows.

Oh... and it's even there in SMB2.  It's just not implemented, thankfully.
