We have quite a few of these dependencies for aio, sendfile,
write cache and possibly others. Making a smb feature depend
on something completely different seems wrong to me. If you
want this out of the loadparm layer, can't you add the
async echo check to the place where lp_readwraw is used,
just moving it out of loadparm.c and into negprot.c?

Or alternatively, make the echo handler depend on read and
write raw being off?
