Yes, we don't want to set any Samba private
bits in the field that gets stored inside
the share_mode_entry.

INTERNAL_OPEN_ONLY is a synonym for req==NULL,
and we probably can now just remove it as a
flag ever passed into SMB_VFS_CREATE_FILE(),
at least in master. It represents an open that
is being done on behalf of the smbd to achieve
another task, and not at the direct request of
the client (which is why req == NULL).

Inside  validate_my_share_entries() we check for
INTERNAL_OPEN_ONLY using the test:

        if (share_entry->share_file_id == 0) {
                /* INTERNAL_OPEN_ONLY */

Yes I think so. When we're looking in the share
mode table we expect any Samba-private bits not
to be there.

INTERNAL_OPEN_ONLY is should only be checked
as a request at open time, not stored in the db.

That was the intent originally. Obviously the
logic has gotten a little messed up :-).

Thanks - as Volker said that's good enough
for us to add an smbtorture test so ensure
we don't regress when we fix this.

I'll take a look on Monday if Volker doesn't
get to it first :-).
