I would love to provide anything you need to help the FSRVP development.
Since I am not really an expert in networking, I am not quite sure if
the log file of samba is sufficient or you want the log of packet
sniffing here.
I attach the samba log in this email. If you need anything else,
please feel free to let me know. :)

Both btrfs share volumes I had used in this case are hooked with
vfs_btrfs and vfs_shadow_copy, so there is nothing in the snapper log.
