FYI. I'm reviewing this right now.

Personally, I think in master we should move the VFS to return
NT_STATUS error codes eventually, but that's a different patch
to improve our infrastructure (I haven't forgotten about Uri's
patch to move open to NTSTATUS also, it's just stuck in my
todo queue :-).

mapping in this case and to make this work with 4.3.x and
below, but longer term I think moving to NT_STATUS returns
would be the better solution.

But that is a patch for another day :-).
