Our client library supports SMB 3.0 since a few days,
see my commits in master:;a=shortlog;h=0f026673eccc349faea56c1168001cfb70b77453

So all our smb2 torture tests should also work against a SMB 3.0 server.

I think we'll have SMB 3.0 support in the server by the end of the week
(in master),
just without all optional features:-)
