Hi Steve, David,

Thank you for your notes and suggestions!

Do you understand right that I can squash David's commit (started with
"SQUASH") into my patch?

Not sure about group file. CIFS (as NFS) doesn't have it's own tests
now. Do you mean to add "test/cifs" directory with an empty (except a
commented header) group file inside (to let us add cifs specific tests
in future)?

Best regards,
Pavel Shilovsky.
