Helping users on IRC (and watching kukks help them ;) ) has lead me to
believe that "socket options" are often more of a problem than a help. Now
I understand that with older kernels they likely provide some enhancement,
but with the newer ones, they seem to cause 'slow transfers' in a lot of
cases. I am curious if this option should be marked as deprecated in man
smb.conf and also if testparm should throw a warning to the user about
using them. What do you guys think on this?
