Sure, we need tests I agree. I don't think we have
any tests for the nasty INTERNAL_OPEN_ONLY code
path other than if the xattr set fails on the
file attributes set :-(.

The old printing code uses it to check driver
file versions (it shouldn't) and the completely
unused SMB1 file_copy code also seems to use it.
Oh yeah, and the get/set file security RPCs
used by Win9x clients uses it (again, it shouldn't).

Once I've got some more free time I will eradicate
this pest from our code base once and for all :-).

But yeah, testing right now would be nice..
