Actually, thinking about this as both Simo and Metze
have complained, I will remove any references to SMB_VFS_NEXT*
calls in the code, and call directly to the underlying
syscalls/and or smbd code. Looking at this again there
isn't a lot of duplication anyway, so I'm not gaining

It is confusing, and is only a lazy way of doing
the right thing - so I'll just do the right thing :-).

Thanks Metze + Simo :-).
