> an idea of how to write smb.conf section, which would use glusterfs's vfs plugin would help me to test and verify the patch. Can you add a example section to examples/smb.conf.default file as comment?
vfs objects = glusterfs
glusterfs:volfile_server = MOUNT-SERVER # defaults to localhost
glusterfs:volume = VOLUME-NAME
path = / # specifying a path will export that subdirectory in the volume instead
Note that you will need to install both glusterfs and glusterfs (with these 2 patches) from git.
